McConnell analyzes the "conspiracy theories," fed by a shadowy cottage industry in the US and Vietnam, which peddles dubious information and artifacts and creates what he describes as a mosaic of deceit and half-truth, thereby distorting the reality of the POW/MIA situation and eroding the effectiveness of the US government agencies charged with resolving the issue. Contains extensive b&w photographs. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

Inside Hanoi's Secret Archives reveals military and diplomatic secrets that are bound to make headlines - about Hanoi's systematic withholding of key POW documents, about MIA cases that the Vietnamese have long denied any knowledge of, about special operations to search for Americans held in Laos, and about POWs who were massacred by villagers or even tortured to death. The Vietnamese military's audacious "back channel" to break the MIA stalemate is disclosed in dramatic detail. The book includes previously unreleased photographs of American POWs, living and dead, from the archives of the Peoples Army of Vietnam, as well as photographs of the Hanoi Military Museum collection - including the "Red Book," the Vietnamese Army's central index of information about POWs.
