Til The Last: Surviving the Truth, Lies and Secrets of the Laotian Civil War
by Sounthone Ratanakone,Todd Samovitz
The true story of Captain Sounthone Ratanakone is simply incredible. He was born into royalty in Laos, was a war hero and a CIA operative in the Secret War in Laos during the Vietnam War. The captain barely survived being a POW in a communist concentration camp (which the communists to this day deny ever existed), made a death-defying escape from the concentration camp, had to escape the communist regime again once he had settled back home, and lived in a refugee camp. Til The Last is a story of heroism, patriotism and self-sacrifice at the highest and most dramatic levels.
