Orphans of the Cold War by John Kenneth Knaus
Book DescriptionThe secret war for Tibet, told by the CIA veteran who helped run American covert operations to support the Tibetan resistance and the Dalai Lama. For decades, the United States ran covert operations into Tibet in an attempt to help Tibetan exiles take back their country from the Chinese. These operations have never been discloseduntil now. John Kenneth Knaus, the CIA station chief who ran these covert actions in the late 1950s and 1960s, gives us both a vivid history of Tibet and a thrilling look inside the Tibetan resistance and their American counterparts. Like a cross between the work of Peter Hopkirk, John le Carr and Jonathan Spence, Orphans of the Cold War is a gripping tale of geopolitics, skullduggery and courage on the roof of the world.
