Hendon & Stewart are right-wing nut-jobs who have done the talking heads circuit trying to pump out the tired old rubbish about the US prisoners abandoned in South-East Asia. The book is more of the same...smoke, mirrors and spin.

Much better to read "The Viet Cong Insurrection Manual For Underdeveloped Countries" by Vo Nguyen Giap. It is at least believable.

Thanks for the input guys. I have always heard talk about this story and kind of thought it might be a bit of bulsh**t but worth a read anyway.Like I said have only just started into it so have no opinion either way.
