Nguy n Cao K (8 September 1930 – 23 July 2011) served as the chief of the Republic of Vietnam Air Force in the 1960s, before leading the nation as the prime minister of South Vietnam in a military junta from 1965 to 1967. Then, until his retirement from politics in 1971, he served as vice president to bitter rival General Nguy n V n Thi u, in a nominally civilian administration. In 1964 K became prominent in junta politics, regarded as part of a group of young, aggressive officers dubbed the Young Turks. Over the next two years, there were repeated coup attempts, many of which were successful, and K was a key player in supporting or defeating them. In 2004, he became the first South Vietnamese leader to return, calling for reconciliation between communists and anti-communists.

The High Road to Hanoi portrays the lives, concerns and emotions of the B-52 crew members during the height of the cold war and throughout the Vietnam Conflict. The period of the narrative is from 1962 to 1973. The main character is a radar navigator (bombardier) on a combat-ready crew who, as a second lieutenant, finds himself flying over the North Pole with nuclear weapons during the Cuban Missile Crisis. During the ensuing ten years, the young officer learns to cope with the sobering responsibilities of standing day-to-day nuclear alert interspersed with actual combat missions over Southeast Asia. The B-52 crews were subjected to unmitigated stress. The pressure was relentless. These men lived with nuclear weapons on a daily basis and were committed to wreak devastation across the globe. The Strategic Air Command (SAC) demanded perfection, anything less was unacceptable.
