Summary
The Vietnam War is the subject of hundreds of scholarly studies, policy reports, memoirs, and literary titles. As America's longest and most controversial war, it coincided with domestic turmoil in the United States and in Southeast Asia, led to the displacement of large numbers of people, and strained the social fabric of Cambodian, Lao, and Vietnamese societies. The complex nature of the war means that despite the many books that have been written about it, much remains to unfold, in particular the experiences of ethnic minorities in Laos who became entangled in Cold War politics during the 1960s and 1970s. This text fills the gap by exploring the dramatic forces of history that drew several dozen young Hmong men to become fighter pilots in the United States' Secret War in Laos, which was in direct support of the larger war in Vietnam
