"One legacy of the Vietnam war is a painful lesson in how not to wage war. The incident at the heart of One Day Too Long reveals in microcosm what went wrong in Vietnam, from the highest policy-making levels down the chain of command to what actually transpired on the field. On March 10, 1968, and the height of the war, eleven U.S. servicemen disappeared from a top secret radar base in Laos, their loss never fully explained by the American government. What happened that fateful night, and why were American airmen stations at - Lima Site 85 - ? Now, thirty years later, One Day Too Long recounts the harrowing story - of government cover-ups, military miscalculations, and crucial policy errors - and offers some closure on this decades-old mystery."
