Three stars, but I actually enjoyed reading it. Pretty informative, and the author tries to stay as objective as he could. The diaries and reports of conferences provide a special perspective to dig in the historical events.

An excellent memoir with first-hand insights into Canada's relationship with China, Korea, Laos, and Vietnam from the 1940s to the 1970s.
