A Fine tight copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. For a couple of years in the early 1960s, the CIA ran a perfect war in Laos--low-key, inexpensive, employing indiginous tribesmen. Then the big war next door in Vietnam began and policy was now dictated by Washington, D.C. and the was in Laos turned disastrous.
