Publisher: Simon & Schuster, New York

Publication Date: 1995

Edition: First Printing of the First Edition


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. Roger Warner tells the story of secrecy, an over confident war policy, the hard-fighting warriors and the cruel sacrifice of Lao tribesmen who had previously foiled communist incursion.
