. . . the ultimate insider's account of the war from the South Vietnamese side, including the appalling story of how the American intervention actually happened. --Washington Post

This book gives Americans a rare opportunity--the chance to see the Vietnam experience through Vietnamese eyes. Few Vietnamese know their recent history as well as Bui Diem does. And none has told it better. --Ambassador William Jorden

. . . well-written and at times illuminating . . . --Library Journal

In the Jaws of History is the most important book written on the Vietnam War from the viewpoint of the South, from an author who was a senior official of the South Vietnamese government and later ambassador to the U.S.
