Foreword
The Southeast Asia Monograph Series is designed and dedicatedto telling the story of USAF‘s participation in the Vietnam War. Thismonograph, the sixth in the Series, adds another exciting chapter toour continuing effort to bring forth and highlight the dedication,courage, and professionalism of the U.S. airman in combat. Theprimary intent of this series is
to
emphasize and dramatize thehuman aspects of this long and frustrating struggle, straying some-what away from the cold hard statistics of “tons of bombs
dropped”
and “structures destroyed,” etc., frequently the headliners in historicalpresentations.“Last Flight From Saigon”
is
an exciting and moving account ofhow all our Services, as well as several civilian agencies, pulledtogether
to
pull-off the largest aerial evacuation in history-whatmany have referred
to
as a modern day Dunkirk. The three authors,intimately involved with the evacuation from beginning
to
end, havecarefully pieced together an amazing story of courage, determinationand American ingenuity., Above all, its a story about saving lives;one that is seldom
told
in times of war. All
too
often, critics ofarmed conflict make their targets out
to
be something less thanhuman, bent on death and destruction. One need only study theenormity of the effort and cost that went into the “evacuation ofSaigon,” and the resultant thousands of lives that were saved,
to
realize that the American fighting man is just as capable, and moreeager,
to
save lives than he is in having to wage war.The reader can help
tell
this story by sharing this book with hisfriends.
