The Secret War in Laos and General Vang Pao 1958-1975
Xlibris Corporation, 2016/06/10 - 370 ページ
From 19611975, the United States found itself embroiled in two wars in Southeast Asia, but for most of that time, the citizens of our country were aware of only one. While scenes from Vietnam made the national news, few Americans knew that their countrymen were also fighting a secret war in the tiny kingdom of Laos. Billy G. Webb's book peels back the layers of secrecy, revealing the truth about a conflict waged below the radar against the relentless forces of Communism. His story celebrates the near-forgotten sacrifices of not just the United States and allied soldiers but courageous civilians as well.
