Book Description Prentice Hall, USA, 1977. Soft cover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First edition, first impression. SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR, IN BLACK PEN, ON TITLE PAGE 'With Warm Best Wishes Alan Dawson Bangkok June '81'. Some edge wear to top and bottom of soft covers and spine, spine only very slightly creased, not price clipped (no published price), no other inscriptions, internally clean tight and square, overall a vg++ copy. 366pp. With a combination of close up montage and blunt generalization, the UPI Saigon bureau chief who lived through the capture of Saigon reconstructs the early 1975 military failures and political misjudgments that preceded final collapse. Dawson starts by asking why so many US dependent Vietnamese personnel were abandoned in the April melee of American evacuation, then flashes back to 1974 North Vietnamese documents on their plans for victory and the US decision to respond 'with words instead of bombs'. As the enemy was allowed to capture the highlands, not only did South Vietnamese troops adopt a retreat mentality, but a wave of refugees was created whose plight is most graphically shown at Da Nang, where women and children clung to the fuselage of the 727 plane as it took off with its South Vietnamese troop load. Back in Saigon, embassy and other employees were assured that when the time came, they could leave with the Americans, but while Thieu's family was busy smuggling brass scrap from the battlefield, American officials refused to plan evacuation assistance. An excoriating denunciation of American policy in the final days of the Vietnamese War. Quite scarce signed. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 006648
