The Road Not Taken

Edward Lansdale and the American Tragedy in Vietnam

Max Boot

Edward Lansdale was a CIA agent who has been compared to Graham Greene’s ‘Quiet American’. He refused to participate in the overthrow of South Vietnam’s Diem government, a key turning point in the escalating conflict, and continued to argue for a less aggressive approach with more focus on winning hearts and minds. This biography explores his life and the impact that the different approach he advocated might have had.
