Spies and Commandos: How America Lost the Secret War in North Vietnam

    By

    Time after time during the Vietnam War, the United States sent Vietnamese spies and commandos behind enemy lines only to have them killed, captured or compromised into reporting back false information. This is a sobering account of the disastrous secret programme, run first by the CIA and then by the Department of Defense. It aims to reveal a previously hidden side to a frustrating war and reclaims the lost lives of those who were sacrificed for so little gain.
