The Sky Would Fall. Operation Vulture--The Secret U.S. Bombing Mission To Vietnam, 1954.
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. The proposal included heavy bombing missions (with the possible use of atomic bombs) grounds troops and the possibility of war with China. Prados recreates the series of meetings from declassified documents, meetings that included Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Lyndon Johnson, Winston Churchill and other high ranking political figures.
