"... this aoutobiographical account of a young Canadian's experiences in Indochina -mostly Loas- in the earliest days (1954-55) of the International Commission for Supervision and Control (ICSC) in Indochina. It focuses on the role played by Canada in one of its earliest peace-keeping involvements as a member of ICSC in Viet Nam, Cambodia and Loas. In the light of the tragedy that was later to befall this troubled area, it is perhaps difficult to see where we, the pioneers of the ICSC, made any dent on the history of thses unfortunate countries. And yet, for a number of years, the ICSC was instrumental in preserving a difficult period of transition from French colonial rule to independence. I believe this to be one of Canada's significant contributions to the peace of the world."
(From the Prologue)
