Time after time during the Vietnam War, the United States sent Vietnamese spies and commandos behind enemy lines only to have them killed, captured, or compromised into reporting back false information. Kenneth Conboy and Dale Andrade's sobering account of this disastrous secret program -- run first by the CIA and then by the Department of Defense -- reveals a previously hidden side to a frustrating war and reclaims the lost lives of those who were sacrificed for so little gain.
Annotation:
This study of the Studies and Observation Group (SOG)--a Department of Defense covert operations group in the Vietnam War--is full of once secret information and compelling narratives about these deeply flawed, ultimate failures, and analyzes why such operations did not work.
