BeschreibungDrawing on recently declassified documents and interviews with more than 100 U.S., South Vietnamese, and North Vietnamese sources, historian Mark Moyar dissects attempts to eradicate the Viet Cong infrastructure. Filled with new revelations and corrections of existing accounts, Moyar's long overdue history sets the record straight about one of the last remaining secrets of the Vietnam War--and offers poignant lessons for dealing with future Third World insurgencies. 40 photos.
