by Garnett "Bill" Bell w/ Goerge J. Veith
Leave No Man Behind is the powerful story of Garnett "Bill" Bell's quest, at great personal cost, to find and bring home the POWs and MIAs of the Vietnam War. With his encyclopedic knowledge of the Vietnamese Communists and his fluency in various regional dialects, he penetrated the system the Communists had created to exploit American POWs for diplomatic concessions, or their remains and personnal effects for financial rewards. In this book, Bell shares his perspective as a witness to history as it unfolded.
