Rufus Phillips, author

Lecture and book signing

First serving in Vietnam as a member of the CIA in 1954, Rufus Phillips is one of the few remaining advisors who watched the Vietnam War grow from its infant stages to a full-scale conflict. From working with the legendary Edward Lansdale in the 1950s to overseeing USAID’s Strategic Hamlet program, Mr. Phillips will share his own experiences, discuss our many false assumptions about Vietnam, and how lessons learned in SE Asia can assist in our approach to events in Iraq and Afghanistan.
