It wasnÕt rockets or artillery that came through the skies one week during the war. It was the horrific force of nature that suddenly put both sides in awe. As an unofficial truce began, questions and emotions battled inside every air crewmanÕs mind as they faced masses of Vietnamese civilians outside their protective base perimeters for the first time. Could we trust them not to shoot? Could they trust us not to drop them off in a detention camp? Truces never last, but life changes a bit for all the people involved while they are happening. Sometimes wars are suspended and fighting stops for a while. A holiday that both sides recognize might do it, as happened in the Christmas truce during World War I. Weather might do it, too, as it did in Vietnam in October 1970. The Òtyphoon truceÓ was just as real, and the war stopped for three days in northern I Corps--that area bordering the demilitarized zone separating South Vietnam from the North. The unofficial Òtyphoon truceÓ came because first, Super Typhoon Joan arrived, devastating all the coastal lowlands in I Corps and further up into North Vietnam. Then, less than a week later came Super Typhoon Kate. Kate hit the same area with renewed fury, leaving the entire countryside under water and the people there faced with both war and natural disaster at the same time. No one but the Americans, the foreign warriors fighting throughout the country, had the resources to help the people who lived in the lowlands, and so they did. For the men who took their helicopters out into the unending rain it really made little difference. Perhaps no one would shoot at them for a while, but the everyday dangers they faced remained, magnified by the low clouds and poor visibility. The crews got just as tired, maybe more so, than on normal missions. None of that really mattered. The aircrews of the 101st Airborne went out to help anyway, because rescuing people was now their mission. In this book we see how for a brief period during an otherwise vicious war, saving life took precedence over bloody conflict.
„Das Mädchen Kiêu" wird nicht nur wegen seiner fortschrittlichen Thematik eins der bewunderungswürdigsten Denkmäler vietnamesischer Dichtkunst bleiben. Wie kein zweiter hat es Nguyên Du verstanden, die volkstümliche vietnamesische Versschöpfung mit der gediegenen Kultur chinesischer Klassik zu verbinden. Seine literarischen Gemälde finden in der vietnamesischen Poesie nicht ihresgleichen. Die Frische eines Frühlingsspaziergangs, die Schrecknisse einer unheilvollen Nacht, die Empfindungen eines keuschen Mädchens, die niedrige Gier eines Bordellbesitzers — es gibt kein Bild, das die Feder des Dichters nicht mit vortrefflicher Leichtigkeit zeichnet. Die Geschichte der Thuy Kiêu ist ein nachahmenswertes Beispiel, wie die Sprache des Volkes zur vollendeten künstlerischen Aussage gelangen kann.
