‘Dang Thuy Tram's Diary’, the famous war book has just been introduced in the Russian language on July 24.
The 340-page book was translated by Dr. Le Van Nhan and Russia’s Dr. Anatoly Sokolov.
The diary has already been translated into 18 languages. The film “Dung Dot” (Don’t Burn), directed by People’s Artist Dang Nhat Minh, was an adaption from the diary and won the prestigious “Best Feature” award at the 2010 Canh Dieu Vang (Golden Kite) Film Festival in Vietnam.
Dang Thuy Tram was a female Vietnamese military doctor who worked as a surgeon on the battlefield, for the North Vietnamese army during the American war.
She was killed at the age of 27 by US forces while defending her hospital in Quang Ngai Province in south central Vietnam.
Her wartime diaries, which chronicle the last three years of her life, attracted international attention following their publication in 2005.
In July 2005, Tram's diaries were published in Vietnamese under the title Nhat ky Dang Thuy Tram (The diary of Dang Thuy Tram), which quickly became a best-seller.
