Fuelling the War: Revealing an Oil Compnay's Role in Vietnam
This is the story of the role of oil in the Vietnam war. Revealed here for the first time is the way American oil suppliers also ended up fuelling the communist armies--under the blind eye of Shell--with shipments flowing through indirect channels. The action takes place mostly in Saigon among ambassadors, generals, politicians, bankers, businessmen, CIA agents, spies, and hustlers, and for the first time unveils the behind-the-scenes manipulation and skulduggery which formed the unknown part of the Vietnam War.
