Inside Hanoi's Secret Archives reveals military and diplomatic secrets that are bound to make headlines - about Hanoi's systematic withholding of key POW documents, about MIA cases that the Vietnamese have long denied any knowledge of, about special operations to search for Americans held in Laos, and about POWs who were massacred by villagers or even tortured to death. The Vietnamese military's audacious "back channel" to break the MIA stalemate is disclosed in dramatic detail. The book includes previously unreleased photographs of American POWs, living and dead, from the archives of the Peoples Army of Vietnam, as well as photographs of the Hanoi Military Museum collection - including the "Red Book," the Vietnamese Army's central index of information about POWs.
