Publisher: Dial Press, New York

Publication Date: 1983

A Very Good copy in a Very Good dust jacket with chipping to spine, edgewear and rubbing to the panels. This is the true story of Operation Vulture, a plan designed by President Eisenhower and his advisors to provide major US involvement in support of the French at Dien Bien Phu where they were locked in a deadly battle with the Vietnamese.
