MULE is real-life report on CIA operatives
The secret war in Laos was all-out mountian combat between main line North Vietnamese forces on the one hand & rag-tag CIA mercenaries, Air America, Ravens, & Hmong guerrillas on the other. CODENAME MULE describes the action in a straight forward, first-hand way. The CIA characters - Hog, Kayak, Bamboo, Clean, Digger, Greek, etc - most of whom are dead now, are clearly portrayed. If you want to know what it was really like to be trained by the CIA for more than a year and then sent upcountry Laos to fight a secret war with CIA operatives - read this book. Also read my second book, LAST MAN OUT, on CIA operations in Vietnam.
