A fabulous book which has interviews from the highest to the lowest serving on every side, antiwar protesters, civilians, diplomats, spies, journalists even James Brown!
Over 130 men, women and children give their points of view from the OSS operatives who helped train Ho Chi Ming to the pilots airlifting the embassy staff out of Saigon.
Fascinating and complex.
OSTENDE MIHI PECUNIAM!
