Edward Geary Lansdale (1908-1987) truly became a legend in his own time. His mission to the Philippines in the early 1950s as an Air Force officer and CIA agent resulted in the defeat of the communist-led Hukbalahap movement and the subsequent election of Ramon Magsayay, arguably the most popular president that the people of the Philippines have known.

I read this book when I was doing research for the Ensign Locker. I was looking for something else and stumbled across it this afternoon. Great history of the Philippines march to independence, and more than a little hint of what we should have done in Vietnam.
