Four Days of Mayaguez is a compelling story of bold confrontation and heightening drama, of the courage and heroism of the captured crew and the Marines during the four tension-filled days of the Mayaguez Incident. The four days―Monday through Thursday―of the divisions of this book were, because of the international dateline, Sunday through Wednesday in Washington.One of the most controversial and dramatic incidents in the post-Vietnam period was the retaking of the American cargo ship Mayaguez after it was seized by the revolutionary government forces of Cambodia. The whole truth of what happened during the capture, the attack, the recovery―as well as why President Ford made the decision he did, and the human stories of the crew members themselves. Roy Rowan details the diplomatic effort to obtain the release and tells why the Marines, the Air Force, and the Navy were ordered to attack.
