Sam Adams loved intelligence work, and that enthusiasm shines throughout this memoir of his years with the Central Intelligence Agency. His career was dominated by an epic struggle over Vietnam — over military attempts to hide the true size of the enemy forces there, and over the integrity of the intelligence process. Adams's insistence on telling the truth caused trouble in both Washington and Saigon at the time. And years later, after the CIA had threatened to fire him and he had quit the agency in disgust, Adams told his story in a CBS documentary which eventually resulted in a notorious trial on libel charges brought by General William Westmoreland.
