Battle for Skyline Ridge: The CIA Secret War in Laos0.0 0 5 Scritto da: James E. Parker Letto da: Joe Barrett
They faced the rag-tag army of Vang Pao, fewer than 6,000 strong and mostly Thai irregulars, recruited by the Thai army to fight for the CIA in Laos. Despite the odds being overwhelmingly in the NVA's favor, the battle did not go to plan. It raged for more than 100 days, the longest in the Vietnam War, and it all came down to Skyline Ridge. As at Dien Bien Phu, whoever won Skyline, won Laos.
Against all odds, the NVA lost, their 27,000-man invasion force decimated.
James E. Parker, Jr., served in Laos. Over many years he pieced together his own knowledge with CIA files and North Vietnamese after-action reports in order to tell the full story of the battle of Skyline Ridge.
