Buddha's Child: My Fight To Save Vietnam
Ky reveals the remarkable story of his tumultuous tenure as premier of S. Vietnam, and offers insight into the war's beginning, escalation, and troubling conclusion. With little experience in governing and none in international affairs, and while continuing to fly combat missions, Ky attempted to unite a country undermined by corruption and riven by political, ethnic, and religious factions. He left S. Vietnam in 1975 during the Fall of Saigon. Ky discusses his own successes and failures as a leader and dramatically relates the progress of the war as it unfolded on the ground and behind the scenes, incl. anecdotes about Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, William Westmoreland, Henry Cabot Lodge, William Colby, Henry Kissinger, and many others. B&W photos.
