Tilting at Mekong Windmills is the true story of four participants in the Vietnam tragedy: John Paul Vann, a very senior American civilian; Philip (Ted) Serong, an Australian Army brigadier who became a CIA agent; and two Vietnamese siblings on opposite sides of the struggle. All made significant contributions to the war effort but met undeserved fates. For the author, this is a work of admiration for Vann and Serong. Heroes, who performed extraordinary service for the American side, both made strategic recommendations that might have led to a more favorable outcome. The other characters reflect the irony of the times. All were “tilting at windmills”.
