Hard to Swallow
What disappointed you about The Secret Army?
The white wash of American involvement in the insurgency, village rape, murder, servitude and the Drug trade. Lacked balance! Does mention the fact that their using American weapons but no real rigor in investigation.
Has The Secret Army turned you off from other books in this genre?
Have you listened to any of Colin Mace’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Only book of his I read.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
The book is dry and should have looked at the affect of the Chinese on the original people and also followed the drug trade along the line and also showed how it affect western youth.
Any additional comments?
Still did learn a lot about this subject but felt I was not balanced!
