ISBN: 9781447294740 Category: Tags: ,


‘A remarkable story of subterfuge and brainwashing that few Hollywood scriptwriters could have made up’ Simon Heffer author of The Age of Decadence In 1967 at the height of the Vietnam War an exodus begins. A thousand American deserters and draft-resisters escape the brutal fighting for the calm shores of Stockholm. These defectors are young radical and want to start a revolution. The Swedes treat their new guests like rock stars – but the CIA is going to put a stop to that. It’s a job for the deep-cover men of Operation Chaos and their allies – agents who know how to invade radical organizations and crush them from the inside. And within a few months the GIs have turned on each other – and the interrogations and recriminations begin. A gripping espionage story filled with a host of extraordinary and unbelievable plays Operation Chaos is the incredible but true account of the men who left the war how they betrayed each other and how they became lost in a world where anything seemed possible – even the idea that the CIA had secretly programmed them to kill their friends.
