Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dirty Little Secrets of the Vietnam War allows us to see what really happened to American forces in Southeast Asia, separating popular myth from explosive reality in a clear, concise manner. Containing more than two hundred examinations of different aspects of the war, the book questions why the American military ignored the lessons taught by previous encounters with insurgency forces; probes the use of group think and mind control by the North Vietnamese; and explores the role technology played in shaping the way the war was fought. Of course, the book also reveals the "dirty little secrets," the truth behind such aspects of the conflict as the rise of the Montagnard mercenaries-the most feared group of soldiers participating in the secret war in Laos-and the details of the hidden struggle for the Ho Chi Minh Trail.

With its unique and perceptive examination of the conflict, Dirty Little Secrets of the Vietnam War offers a critical addition to the library of Vietnam War history.

Synopsis:

This revealing reference contains more than 200 items that blow apart many of the common myths regarding the Vietnam Conflict. The revelations include details of the secret war for the Ho Chi Minh Trail, the use of mind control by the North Vietnamese, and the presence of former Imperial Japanese and Nazi troops in the ranks of the Viet Minh.
