George Kenney interview: "The Vietnam War with Bob Drury" @ Electric Politics

Dear Michael,

After WWII a lot of soldiers waited decades to tell their stories -- if they ever did. It's the same with the Vietnam War. New stories, new ways of looking at events large and small, finally become known. Bob Drury and Tom Clavin have written up one of these inLast Men Out: The True Story of America's Heroic Final Hours in Vietnam (Free Press, 2011). It's about the Marine Security Guards at the U.S. Embassy in Saigon -- genuinely heroic men, not least because in all the confusion U.S. military and diplomatic authorities forgot about them and almost left them behind. According to Bob, this is the first time their story has been told.
