Scope and Contents

Book titled The Son Tay Raid: American POWs in Vietnam Were Not Forgotten by John Gargus documents the planning and execution of the daring attempt to rescue American POWs in North Vietnam on 20 November 1970. The book argues that although the raiders failed to find the POWs and that many people considered the raid to be a failure; the operation shocked the North Vietnamese and caused them to give better treatment to the POWs. It also showed the POWs that they were not forgotten.
