Synopsis: "If the tiger ever stands still, the elephant will crush him with his mighty tusks. But the tiger will not stand still. He will leap upon the back of the elephant, tearing huge chunks from his side, and then he will leap back into the dark jungle. And slowly the elephant will bleed to death. Such will be the war in Indochina."--Ho Chi Minh

The Elephant and the Tiger (originally published in 1990 by Hippocrene Books), is a thorough and thought-provoking history of the Vietnam War. It chronicles the events from Dec. 13, 1954, the date when the US first signed a formal agreement with France to assume more responsibility for equipping and training the South Vietnamese armed forces, until 1975 when South Vietnam's army was swept aside by the North Vietnamese Army and the last Americans were forced to flee the country in defeat.

About the Author: Wilbur H. Morrison was a radio announcer and news commentator before joining the Army Air Corps and becoming a B-29 bombardier-navigator during WWII. He flew five hundred combat hours during the war, receiving twenty-one awards and decorations, and rising to the rank of lieutenant colonel. In 1954, he went to work for the Douglas Aircraft Company where he became manager of public relations. Morrison is the author of more than twelve books and is considered to be one of America's leading military historians and authority on military and commercial aviation.
