In Buddha's Child, Nguyen Cao Ky reveals the remarkable story of his tumultuous tenure as Premier of South Vietnam, and offers unprecedented insight into the war's beginning, escalation, and heartbreaking end. A thirty-four year old pilot and Air Force commander, known for his fighter-pilot's moustache, flowing lavender scarf and his reputation as a ladies' man, Ky in 1965 agreed to lead South Vietnam after a series of coups had dangerously destabilized the nation.

Even after 25 years in America, former South Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Cao Ky is regarded as a national hero by three million fellow expatriots. He travels widely in the US and abroad, and is recognized and applauded by former US servicemen, to whom he remains a charismatic and admirable figure. Buddha's Child will flood the shadowy corners of South Vietnam's Byzantine political world with the bright light of truth. Ky will describe the Americans and their activities from the perspective of the Vietnamese patriot. Condemned by US Defense Secretary Robert McNamara as "the absolute bottom of the barrel," Ky was not expected to survive a week in the office into which he was thrust. Instead, he lasted three years, until he wrote himself out of office by penning the country's first constitution.
  • Having served in Vietnam, I have my own fairly strong views about what went right, but more importantly what went wrong in the Vietnam War. But mine is an American perspective. In "Buddha's Child," General Ky gives a Vietnamese, very personal, account. I certainly agree with him that the war was worth fighting and was winnable, at least early on. I also agree with him that the US made many mistakes. But then so did Vietnam, as Ky documents very well.
    "Buddha's Child" is KY's own story from his early days growing up in the North all the way to his narrow escape from Saigon when the North's tanks rolled into the city. In between, he describes his life as a military pilot, Chief of the VNAF, President in a military-run government and VP of the civilian elected government which brought President Thieu to power.
    Ky gives himself (with the help of Buddha) a lot of credit for keeping the South's hopes alive for quite some time. He is often quite critical of his own performance, but more often presents himself as South Vietnam's greatest leader and one whose capabilities rank well above most ordinary humans.
    He talks about his life in the US which has been made more difficult because he came here without any money. While in power, He declined opportunities to accept bribes and always held corruption at arms length. His various business ventures in America have met with mixed success
    It is clear that he has deep regrets about the way the Vietnam war ended with communists in total power. He believes, however, that communism in his country will give way to free markets and other freedoms in a way that it will not (has not) in China. He thinks relations between Vietnam and the US will continue to get better and better and that Vietnam will eventually be a good US ally in the region.
    As a USAF fighter pilot, I have very positive feelings about General Ky. But I also believe that the book will appeal to people who have not ever been affiliated with the military. It is very interesting to get the picture of Vietnam from an articulate member of the other side. "Buddha's Child" is a very good read

  • This is a wonderful book which should be read by every American interested in the "Vietnam syndrome".

    Though vilified by liberal writters, Ky gives himself a very different image in this amazing autobiography. Having spent the last 30 years of his life in America, he ends with a prediction that Vietnam and America will be the best of allies in the future.

    After reading this carefully, we can only hope so.

  • Very entertaining-- Nguyen Cao Ky is the man! I could NOT put this book down for a second.

  • I loved this book.It is an important insight into Vietnam and the Vietnam war. Charmingly arrogant at times (Ky is very flamboyant!), it is also honest and thought provoking. A must read for any student of Vietnam.

  • A must read for all Vietnam veterans and the 68 ers who couldn't stop demonstrating until the DRAFT was ended. Of course the war went on although demonstrations, lest a few Catholic nuns, ceased. The altruism of the demonstrators was doubtful at that point; similar to what they exhibit in todays politics where they govern.
    Nugyen Cao Ky's leadership & real patriotism during extraordinay times was a 'textbook' example absent today in the USA. His 'inside -out' look at the US leadership including, Johnson and presidential candidates, is enlightening. Little publicized courageous acts from flying dangerous missions to jumping up to speak in anti-war crowds here and in Australia. He actually turned most of the crowds he spoke to. His courage , integrity and patriotism in aiding Vietnam in the 80's to become more internationally trade oriented, shown thru.
    I was sorry to hear of his demise a couple years ago in Kuala Lumpur. He was interred here in California, however.

  • Still reading this book. It is very intense; but I recommend it to any history buff.

  • Time has soften Ky's views of America's role and conduct of supporting South Vietnam during the war. My comparison is to what he wrote in his first book (How we lost the Vietnam War). This was a much more balanced, and less bitter tale.

  • Not biased Good historical book Any military officer going to Iraq should read this
