Political Upheavel in the Center of Vietnam
The content of the book centers around the An Quang Buddhist sect's rebellion, led by Venerable Thich Tri Quang in collaboration witht the undercover communist organizations in Thua Thien Province and Hue City. At the same time, Venerable Thich Tri Quang also proselytized Infantry Division I, of I Corps - of which the commander was General Nguyen Chanh Thi - to join the movement. The monk's purpose was to occupy the six provinces of Central Vietnam and convert them into an autonomous zone.

The Hue Massacre of 1968
On the eve of the 1968 Tet Offensive, Hanoi herded 10,000 troops to launch a ferocious attack on and occupy Hue for 22 days. During these 22 days, they - in collaboration with their local undercover cells - had killed 5,275 innocent people and taken away another 1,200. The RVN Army in coordination with a division of US Marines had to tenaciously struggle for 22 days straight to recapture the City of Hue.

Venerable Thich Tri Quang: An Idol or a Criminal?
A truthful revelation about Venerable Thich Tri Quang, a person whom American media at times proclaimed to have shakened up the United States of America.

The Intelligence War Between the RVN, the CIA, and Hanoi
This was a war that after 1975 Hanoi proclaimed to have won. Reality, however, revealed that the winner was the intelligence organizations of the First and Second Republics of Vietnam in collaboration and coordination with the CIA of the United States of America.
