Summary
"Both personal memoir and political history, this book recounts the decisions that fully embroiled the United States in the Vietnam War. Trueheart chronicles the ways in which the breakdown between his godfather, Frederick Nolting, U.S. ambassador to South Vietnam, and his father, William Trueheart, second in command at the embassy, led to the breakdown of U.S.-South Vietnamese relations and a violent coup three weeks before President Kennedy was assassinated"-- Provided by publisher.
