"Mai mai tuoi 20" and the photo of martyr Nguyen Van Thac

“What is happiness?”, a book by martyr Nguyen Van Thac, the author of “Mai mai tuoi 20” (Forever 20), and his girlfriend Pham Nhu Anh has just been presented by the Publishing House of the Vietnamese Writers Association.

The book includes the manuscripts of letters and poems that the couple wrote to each other in wartime.

“Reading “Mai mai tuoi 20”, readers merely know about the thought of a private in green uniform. But “What is happiness?” helps them to learn about the thought of martyr Nguyen Van Thac as a student,” poet Pham Tien Duat wrote.

According to poet Bang Viet, the book has once again affirmed noble characters and spirits of the generations of students in wartime that young generation today should have to understand and learn.
