Decent Interval: An Insider's Account of Saigon's Indecent End
Throughout the last turbulent months of the Vietnam War, Frank Snepp, CIA analyst and operative for the Embassy in Saigon, accurately forecast each twist and turn of the screw. Yet when the end came in April, 1975 the Ambassador and Kissinger's State Department were caught dangerously off guard. Only the heroism of a few young Embassy officers and the ingenuity of the Defense Attache saved the final American evacuation from total disaster.
