Description

I met Dr. Tom Dooley when he was touring the country to raise funds for Medico. Going to college in the 60's, Dr. Tom Dooley was one of the hero's of my generation

I met Dr. These books changed my life. I became a nurse because of them and had a 45 year career as a result. Tom Dooley was one of the hero's of my generation. I bought the three combined books and also "Promises to Keep" for my husband who knew little of him. I reread them all-a wonderful journey back. I recommend it to anyone who knows little about Southeast Asia and the more noble aspects of America's efforts there. 2 people found this helpful.

Historical reputations can be fickle. Adironam Judson, Rufus Choate, and Edward Everett were once considered great Americans--who remembers them? During the late 1950s Dr. Tom Dooley was as famous as Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, or Van Cliburn: today he is a mere footnote in the history of Indochina. He became a folk hero for his work with refugees in Vietnam and Laos (it didn't hurt that he had the same name as a hit song by the Kingston Trio). Then, as the mood of the nation changed in the late 1960s, he became a whipping boy for those opposed to America's Vietnam policy. This is hardly fair: after all, Dooley died of cancer in 1961, long before the Gulf of Tonkin Incident, before the Tet Offensive, before My Lai. He can no more be blamed for whatever went wrong in Vietnam than Florence Nightingale can be blamed for Balaclava. True, he was gay, but so what? Gay-bashing hasn't been part of the Left's arsenal since the days of Whittaker Chambers. He may have provided intelligence for the CIA, but again, I see nothing criminal in that. The Dooley who emerges in these volumes is a man of rare courage, compassion, and devotion to the Hippocratic Oath. His love of Asia and its people. his tolerance, his lack of racial prejudice are refreshing, as is his view that foreign aid should teach people how to help themselves rather than make them dependent on Uncle Sam indefinitely. His descriptions of Communist atrocities are credible and agree with what I have read elsewhere. These books offer a poignant look at how things might have gone differently in Southeast Asia if there had been more people like Tom Dooley.

I read these books when I was in high school in the 60's. I met Dr. Tom Dooley when he was touring the country to raise funds for Medico. These books changed my life. I became a nurse because of them and had a 45 year career as a result. My original copies are paperback and have suffered in the intervening years. I wanted a hard cover version to assure I don't lose them.

This is such an inspirational story. It chronicles the very sad partitioning of Veitnam in 1954. Read it, you will be proud and surprised at what you learn.

With the Cold War fading fast in the rear view mirror of our busy 21st Century lives, we are losing the memory of what we fought for and why we won, despite our failure in Vietnam. Parents, have your children read this so that they will understand the monstrous evil that Communism represented in the last century. Read it because knowing the truth will innoculate them against the lie the next time it comes around in this century.

I read this book many many years ago. ! remember when dr tom died, the radio station that announced his death
played "hang down your head tom dooley" right after the announcement. i remember my mother commenting that
that wasnt nice, and it wasnt. i was knee high to a grasshopper then. A few years ago i found this book in a used
book store in manhattan, purchased it, re-read it, passed it on, and realized that i would want to have a copy to keep for myself, to re-read from time to time and pass it along again someday.

Quite applicable to today's world. He is a brilliant man who saw needy people and spent his life taking care of those needs, similar to Mother Theresa but years ago.

not as engrossing as thought
I first read this book or books many years ago. Just after the French pulled out of Viet Nam. I found them interesting, informative and also very disturbing in the ways and reasons for torturing people. It is one of the reasons I felt it was not bad to try to help the South Vietnamese people.
