Historians have long judged America’s exit from the Vietnam war in 1975 as an utter defeat. But Thurston Clarke’s authoritative history of the Fall of Saigon reveals a long-ignored aspect: the heroic efforts of diplomats, businessmen, soldiers, missionaries, contractors and spies to effect the escape of 130,000 South Vietnamese who had supported the government or worked with Americans. These refugees became one of America’s most successful immigrant groups. “Honorable Exit” has been hailed not only as a page-turning thriller, but also “an important corrective to the historical record.” 

Thurston Clarke, award-winning travel writer and author of nine fiction and nonfiction books, has appeared in many publications including Vanity Fair, Glamour, Outside, Travel Holiday and Condé Nast Traveler.
