About this title

Synopsis:

is the remarkable story of Jim Parker a former C.I.A. agent and the last man to leave Vietnam. the Author explains how the agency worked behind the scenes to assist the military in the war. also explores the anti-war movement back home and its effect on how the war was conducted. Parker makes the point that the price paid in Vietnam ultimately caused the collapse of the Soviet Union rid the country of Lyndon Johnson and enabled the U.S. to gain a foothold in China

From the Inside Flap:

AMONG THE FIRST MEN IN,
AND I WAS THE LAST MAN OUT."

In Vietnam, at both the start and finish of the conflict, 2d Lt. James E. Parker Jr. saw the war as few men did. Now, with uncommon insight and raw honesty, he captures the stark realities of jungle combat, heavy casualties, and heroic sacrifice. From the tight confines of a VC-occupied Cu Chi tunnel to bloody firefights in areas that hardcore VC and NVA vets had controlled for decades, Parker relives the rain, the heat, the horror, the pain--and the anguish of kneeling beside a buddy whose blood turnd the soil black as he lays dying. Vietnam exacted a very high price. Parker pays tribute to the men who paid it.
