About this Item

A Very Good plus copy with a sticker shadow on the front pastedown in a Very Good plus price-clipped dust jacket. In 1967, American forces secretly surrounded the village of Ben Suc--known as a Viet Cong stronghold--and evacuated its 3500 inhabitants in an attempt to eradicate enemy residents. The village was destroyed and the villagers relocated. This is the narrative of American skill and good intentions squandered in a hopeless cause rife with misunderstanding, resistant traditions, and cultural gaps. This story first appeared in a single issue of The New Yorker. Bookseller Inventory # 24032
