Page turning account of South Vietnam's chaotic final days told by a CIA analyst stationed in Saigon Snepp's book offers the same grim momentum and dramatic power of most apocalyptic end of an era books South Vietnamese officials and civilians panicking at the Communist approach contradictory directives from higher ups the air of unreality within the embassy itself as stoic CIA officials resigned Marines and terrified diplomats jostle for space unsure when the end will come and how they might escape All this and military struggles especially ARVN's shameful collapse after a decade of resistance into self immolating panic diplomatic intrigues from American dealings with the ICCS controlled by Hungarian and Polish diplomats sympathetic to North Vietnam to the French government's futile efforts at mediating with the NVA political miscalculations at home all receive compelling treatment The final chapters recounting the panicked evacuations under Communist fire are written in true white knuckle style It's not a straightforward memoir as Snepp remains relatively detached only describing his own adventures occasionally Nonetheless the narrative's colored by anger particularly directed towards Gerald Ford Henry Kissinger and Congressional leaders who consigned their allies and their own soldiers and civil servants to an indecent end A reader can challenge Snepp's specific conclusions but not his authority to give them An angry powerful book part nonfiction thriller part expose and entirely gripping

CIA intelligence analyst Frank Snepp recounts his three year tour in South Vietnam giving a particular emphasis to the final days of the collapse of South Vietnam The parallels to Ira have been made but I don't think anyone can really understand the weaknesses and vulnerabilities of a force completely dependent on the US can be conveyed without reading this book This is collapse minute by minute and incredibly detailed There is an intelligence angle that plays a dominant role throughout the book as Snepp is acuiring intelligence and briefing top officials but really the golden part of this book is just reliving the collapse and abandonment of South Vietnam This book took a bite out of my soul and I'm still haunted by it
