Product Description

Review

This is a collection of personal reminiscences and first-hand recollections of diplomatic service in war-torn Indochina beginning in the late 1950s with the International Supervisory Commission and concluding with the last days of that terrible and desperate war in Viet Nam.

These remarkable essays throw much new light on Canada's foreign policy in the far east, and they also provide us with rare insights into the ill-fated American operations. Contributors range from those who served with ambassadorial rank to those who lent support in more modest capacities.

Very interesting view of that disturbed period in then Indochina written by various Canadian F.O. people on postings in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. Insight into a world now gone.
