Reviews

More than a rehash of yesteryear's bureaucratic battles, and more even than delicious inside gossip, Adams paints a fascinating and personalized picture of the backroom, political wartime CIA. - Library Journal

A stunning account by a man of impeccable integrity, of the corruption of U.S. military intelligence in Vietnam. - Mike Wallace If someone were to ask me what three books they should read to understand what happened in Vietnam, I would say: Street Without Joy, by Bernard Fall; Honorable Men, by William Colby; and War of Numbers by Sam Adams. . . . There are probaboly 5,000 books on Vietnam. War of Numbers will become a classic. -- Lt. Col. H. Thomas Hayden, The Marine Corps Gazette As spellbinding as a mystery story -- which of course it is. -- The Boston Globe One of the most important books of the Vietnam War -- Adams has had the last word, in permanent defiance of those who would re-write the war to doublethink specifications. -- The Chicago Tribune
