Voices from the Plain of Jars: Life under an Air War

Two New Books Recall the Aerial Massacre in Laos Fifty Years Ago

Bellaciao | May 20, 2013

The publication date of two different books, to be released on May 31 2013, is a coincidence that could turn out to be a fortuitous one for each, in that both deal with the same topic, the secret war in Laos that took place during the 1960’s, and whose geographical focus is the same area of northern Laos. One is a novel, The Plain of Jars, while the other is a reprint of a 1972 anthology of bombing survivor stories, Voices from the Plain of Jars.
