About the Author

W.R. (Bob) Baker graduated first in the first Intelligence (Order of Battle) Analyst class to graduate from Fort Huachuca, Arizona in 1971. He was then the only intelligence analyst assigned to the 571st Military Intelligence Detachment/525th Military Intelligence Group in Da Nang, Vietnam, present at the time of the Easter Offensive of 1972. His further assignments after Vietnam included various positions for a combined total of 8 years with the European Defense Analysis Center/HQ, USEUCOM. He has received the Bronze Star, Defense Meritorious Service, Joint Service and Army Commendation Medals. Bob has authored several articles on the Easter Offensive of 1972, intelligence, and Vietnam.


"Written with the authority of an intelligence professional whose experience of the Offensive is augmented with years of intensive research, Break in the Chain delivers a stinging condemnation of the historical tendency of senior military officers to privilege intelligence supporting their preferred interpretation of the battlefield reality."--David Hanna, Veteran, British Army in Northern Ireland
"I'm honored to endorse Bob Baker's book, Break in the Chain: Intelligence Ignored, a grass-roots look at the intelligence prepared and presented to command elements warning of an impending attack - what we now know as the 'Easter Offensive of 1972'. I'm excited that his historical work is being published to help counter the misperception by many of an 'intelligence failure', an oft maligned term typically used to cover the failure of leadership itself."--G Duane Whitman, MSG USA (Ret), DoD Civilian (Ret)
