Description
 
Early in World War II, Richardson’s father was recruited into military intelligence & thrown into action in Europe. One of the founding members of the CIA, he quickly emerged as a seasoned “chief of station” in some of the hottest assignments of the cold war, from occupied Vienna to the ballrooms of Athens to the jungles of the Philippines -- & esp. Saigon, where he became a pivotal player in the event most historians see as the turning point of the Vietnam War, the overthrow of South Vietnamese president Ngo Dinh Diem. Although he became a distant cold warrior, he also had a wife & two children. Richardson reveals the clandestine wrangling of the cold war & the innermost workings of a family that played an important role in it. Photos.
