1 The War Cradle: The Untold Story of Operation Babylift Peck-Barnes, Shirley - 1ST EDITION SIGNED BY AUTHOR
Denver, Colorado, U.S.A. Vintage Pressworks 2000 0970688407 / 9780970688408 Special Edition/1st Printing Soft Cover Very Good+ Signed by Author
Vintage Pressworks, Denver, 2000. Signed by author on title page (flat-signed, which means that only the author's signature appears; there is no inscription to any person). Special Edition/1st printing. Soft cover. Book is in Very Good+ condition: slight creasing at corners; apparently unread (spine has no creasing); binding is tight and pages are clean and bright. From the rear cover: "Lost...Starving...Unwanted...they were the thousands of children in Vietnam left to wander the country aimlessly. It was Vietnam's greatest tragedy...children caught in the crossfire of war...too incidental for the concerns of generals, and all uncertain of their fate under the advancing North Vietnamese Army. 'The War Cradle' tells of the events leading up to the last days of the Vietnam War and of the search and rescue of the oppresssed orphans. The American soldier was confronted with the misery of the children at eery turn. Sometimes there were his friend...sometimes the enemy. Stalwart nuns sheltered sick and dying babies in poverty-ridden orphanages and looked to the West for salvation and safe homes. Not all warriors carry guns...there asre some who fight an equally fierce battle without them. This is the true, untold story of not only the orphans, but of the camaraderie and courage of people who were obsessed with saving the children. . . . There were hundreds of . . . volunteeers . . . all of whom lived the tense moments of what some have called 'the greatest rescue mission of the century".
