On offer is a very interesting, original 1967 uncensored manuscript diary of the war in Vietnam handwritten by an unidentified US CIA operative describing his initial time of 2 months on station in South Vietnam. He mentions leaving Goffstown New Hampshire and beginning his 12 day orientation in Saigon, going to the Delta and his attempt to get his area opened the writer is dealing with frustration and everyday road blocks that he surprisingly details over 13 pages of legal-sized paper. Much of the content is 'insider' and intimate. While the writer is unknown he is not shy to identify others he is dealing with on the Vietnamese side by name of position and sometimes rank. Of further interest is his acknowledgement of recieving his commission because of his assets in conventional and unconventional warfare. Overall a fascinating look at the American war effort in south-east Asia. Overall G+.
