    schema:description "Castle reveals how the program, code-named "Heavy Green," was conceived and approved at the highest levels of the U.S. government. He describes the selection of the men and the construction and operation of the radar facility on a mile-high cliff in neutral Laos, even as the North Vietnamese Army began encircling the mountain. He chronicles the Communist air attack on Site 85, the only such aerial bombing of the entire Vietnam War, and further details the successful ground assault and current U.S. and Vietnamese efforts to explain away the missing men. A saga of courage subterfuge, and intrigue, One Day Too Long reveals a shocking betrayal of trust: for thirty years the U.S. government has sought to hide the facts and now seeks to acquiesce to ever-changing Vietnamese explanations for the disappearance of eleven good men."@en ;
