Summary
"This book explores one of the last great mysteries of the war that Henry Kissinger has retrospectively termed "the defining experience of the second half of the twentieth century" and "the black hole of American historical memory"--The clandestine peace initiative, bearing the U.S. code name "Marigold," that in late 1966 sought to end the fighting, or at least open direct talks, between Washington and Hanoi."--Publisher's description
