Summary
"This work focuses on the refugee crisis and the American aid workers--a crew of malcontents and mavericks from the State Department, military, USAID, CIA, and the Peace Corps--who took on the task of helping those most impacted by the Vietnam War. Experts in Southeast Asia, its languages, cultures and people, they saved thousands of lives"--Provided by publisher.
