"From 1961-1975, the United States found itself embroiled in two wars in Southeast Asia…but for most of that time, the citizens of our country were aware of only one. While scenes from Vietnam made the national news, few Americans knew that their countrymen were also fighting a Secret War in the tiny neighboring kingdom of Laos. Billy G. Webb's new book breaks that secret wide open, revealing the truth about a conflict waged below the radar against the relentless forces of Communism. His story celebrates the near-forgotten sacrifices of not just U.S. and allied soldiers, but courageous civilians as well.
