about this book

For a few years in the early 1960s the CIA seemed to be running a perfect covert war in Laos — quiet, inexpensive, just enough arms to help Meo tribesmen defend their home territory from the Communist Pathet Lao. Then the American war in Vietnam spilled across the border. Roger Warner tells the story of how the perfect covert war ballooned into sorrow and disaster in Shooting at the Moon. It is a book about war, about secrecy, and about the cruel sacrifice of small countries for the convenience of large ones.
