Chris Blaker, February 27, 2015 (view all comments by Chris Blaker)
Well-woven narrative that is a coherent and readable book on the Laotian war. I say coherent and well-woven, because it can be difficult to follow the the changing loyalties and compositions of the different Laotian factions. In the same vein as Charlie Wilson's War. Takes an obscure individual and uses him as a vehicle to tell the story, in this case a CIA agent. I felt the author was overly critical of the anti-war movement in general and specifically the ex-pat he describes as a degenerate hippy. The CIA is given a bit of a pass and are described as idealistic men who made some mistakes. The human toll of the bombing seemed to be a bit glossed over. But despite my criticism of political aspects, this book was a great read overall. An engaging read even for those that know little about the wars in Indochina and just want a good story.
