Maps, black and white photographic illustrations, xiii + 284pp, glossary, a very good paperback copy. "For 11 years during the Vietnam War - from 1963-1974 - Dr. Charles Weldon worked in Laos alongside the Meo refugees and tribesmen fighting the North Vietnamese Army and their Pathet Lao allies. Flying all over the country with CIA-run Air America, he was in charge of the remote, primitive, bamboo-and-thatch hospitals, and the 'clandestine schools with bootleg teachers' that provided the only moral and physical support to these people in their struggle against overwhelming odds. Tragedy in Paradise is his fascinating memoir of that time". From the Publisher. (When referring to this item please quote stockid 154200).
