schema:reviewBody""The Pueblo was an aging cargo ship poorly refurbished as a signals intelligence collector for the top secret Operation Clickbeetle. It was sent off with a first-time captain, an inexperienced crew, and no backup, and was captured well before the completion of its first mission. Ignored for a quarter of a century, the Pueblo Incident has been the subject of much polemic but no scholarly scrutiny. Mitchell Lerner now examines for the first time the details of this crisis and uses the incident as a window through which to better understand the limitations of American foreign policy during the Cold War." "Drawing on thousands of pages of recently declassified documents from President Lyndon Johnson's administration, along with dozens of interviews with those involved, Lerner provides the most complete and accurate account of the Pueblo incident to date."--Jacket."
