Description
In the Jaws of History is the most important book written on the Vietnam War from the viewpoint of the South. Bui Diem held many high government offices in South Vietnam: member of the delegation to the 1954 Geneva Conference, Minister at the Prime Minister's Office (1965), Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Ambassador to the United States (1967-72), Special Envoy to the Paris peace talks (1968), and Ambassador at Large (1973-75). He was the mian called upon to plead South Vietnam's case to its giant ally and had regular personal contact with the highest government officials on both sides: Johnson, Nixon, Thieu, Ky, McNamara, Kissinger, Westmoreland.

As Chief of Staff for Prime Minister Phan Huy Quat, Bui Diem was required to write the communique "inviting" U.S. troops into South Vietnam -- while they were landing in Danang. As ambassador to the United States, he was accused of trying to influence the 1968 presidential election, a charge that is fully refuted here.
