display_description"In the early 1960's, a handful of CIA paramilitary officers led a secret war in the mountains of Laos against North Vietnamese and Lao Communist forces. One of those secret warriors, Terrence Burke, gives a vivid account of primitive guerrilla warfare that eventually led to an attempt by the North Vietnamese to capture him. Burke's stories of that war are of gritty and often deadly hit and run tactics against the North Vietnamese, attempted rescues of downed pilots, and daily survival far from American support."
