Publisher's Summary

Yasith Chhun was just a 42-year-old accountant living a comfortable life in California. Then he tried to overthrow the Cambodian government from his humble office in Long Beach. Inspired by films like Braveheart, Chhun planned "Operation Volcano," a scheme replete with espionage, jungle guerrillas, and East German rocket launchers. Could Chhun's quixotic, incredibly risky and potentially bloody coup possibly succeed? And what happens to a man when he leaves the American immigrant dream behind and turns from upstanding citizen into Colonel Kurtz? Former Newsweek editor Adam Piore tells the story.

Not the book I was looking for

This is probably a great book I just choose the wrong title. Sorry I'll try again.
