How few are aware that for approximately every two dozen US military engaged in the Vietnam War there was one American government or NGO (non-government organization) civilian also serving in harms way. Their ratio of casualties was even greaterMoreHow few are aware that for approximately every two dozen US military engaged in the Vietnam War there was one American government or NGO (non-government organization) civilian also serving in harms way.

Their ratio of casualties was even greater than the military. The authors previous training and curiosity as a Social Scientist, plus his unique assignments, gave him an unusually privileged vantage point to observe and evaluate. He traveled through the length and breadth of war time Vietnam frequently during his succeding tours. This book mixes cold history equally with warm personal reality giving it a holographic prospective that really takes the reader back there.

The author distinuishes four district warring entities each with their own agendas and misconceptions about the others. He emphasizes the major reasons why South Vietnam was foredoomed to lose this struggle. His personal motivation in undertaking this work is to counter the clichis and half truths that too often typically offer simplistic and prejudicial representations of those tragic times.

Any fair minded student of this key historical period owes it to themselves to dig deeper. This book makes digging not only easy but engaging as well. (70 photos and maps)
