Sam Adams loved intelligence work, and that enthusiasm shines throughout this memoir of his years with the CIA. His career was dominated by an epic struggle over Vietnam - over military attempts to hide the true size of the enemy forces there. Adams's insistence on telling the truth caused an ungodly ruckus in both Washington and Saigon, and years later, after the CIA had threatened to fire him (on thirteen occasions!) and he had quit the agency in disgust, he brought his story back up to the surface in a CBS documentary which resulted in a notorious libel trial. This memoir tells it all.
