From New York Times Book Review: "An engrossing, detailed, and often hilarious autopsy of a classic military snafu."

I found it to be an interesting behind the scenes story of of the Son Tay prison rescue mission. It shows how even important intel and a worthwhile mission can take months and months to bubble up through the military and political morass.
