Eggleston '61 Publishes "The Montagnard People"
Mike Eggleston ’61 has published a new book entitled The Montagnard People in the Indochina Wars, 1945-1991. This history tells the story of the wars fought by the Montagnards of Indochina against the North Vietnamese, the French, the Vietcong and others as they sought autonomy for the Montagnard tribes. The Montagnards were loyal fighters with U. S. Forces during America’s involvement in the Vietnam War. The struggle of the Montagnards continued long after the fall of South Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia in 1975. The end of Saigon’s war did not end the plight of the Montagnards. This history is based upon the recollections of the author and others involved in the wars in Indochina. This book was published in August 2019.
