'œA carefully done, technologically oriented account of America's 'environmental war' in Vietnam in its two basic forms: defoliation for security reasons and crop destruction for food denial purposes. This is likely to be a definitive work. Cecil flew 1,000 missions in the Ranch Hand Project and probably knows more than anyone about actual herbicidal air operations during the Vietnam War. Extensive appendix on sources and bibliography.''
