Summary

Summary

MIAs addresses an issue that is both timeless and timely. Many families of those missing in action in Vietnam have not given up hope of learning the truth about their loved ones. This volume provides an overview of issues related to U.S. soldiers missing in action from the Vietnam conflict, along with background on MIAs/POWs from pre-Vietnam conflicts.

Topics include imprisonment and release of MIAs, efforts of the U.S. government and civilian organizations to determine their fate, and the effect the MIA controversy has had on diplomatic relations between the United States and Vietnam.
