9781440195600: CIA's Gulf of Tonkin Secrets

When retired Special Forces soldier Kurt Andrew Atwood receives a call in July of 1991 from "The Company," he can't imagine what the CIA needs from him. Now running a security firm, Atwood is older and has changed since his service in the Vietnam War.

He discovers he's being recruited to run an unauthorized, undercover mission to rescue General Fong and his family from Vietnam. Atwood clearly remembers Fong and his involvement in the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964. Fong helped stage a hoax attack on American ships in the Gulf of Tonkin to escalate the war and persuade President Johnson to send more troops. Now, authorities fear someone will discover Fong's collaboration and wage an attack against the CIA.

Atwood is more than willing to attempt the mission, as he has some unfinished business from the Vietnam War days. He assumes the identity of Paul Carper, a casual tourist on his way to Bangkok, and returns to a country that holds a plethora of both painful and joyous memories. But his efforts must concentrate on the dangerous task of getting Fong, his wife, and their two daughters out of Vietnam and to safety in the United States.
