Tells one of the great unknown stories of the Vietnam War: the American military s extensive secret operations to locate & rescue POW/MIAs during the conflict. Veith has assembled an extensive range of previously unseen material which reveal how the U.S. military conducted a centralized effort to identify, locate, & rescue its POW/MIAs. Uncovers the primary reason why the government did not think any Americans were left behind: a clandestine communication program between the POWs & the U.S. military. This still-sensitive program provided the identities & locations of American prisoners, defeating North Vietnamese efforts to keep their names & locations a secret. Illustrations.
