James R. Ward was a senior CIA officer and comrade of William Colby and Evan Parker in the elite OSS unit the Jedburghs.  
Upon his arrival in Vietnam, Ward assisted US Army Colonel Junichi Buhto (also a Jedburgh) and Evan Parker in composing 
the document (see MACV Directive 381-41) that enabled the Phoenix Program. Ward then served as the CIA officer in charge 
of Phoenix program operations in IV Corps, 1967-1969. An earthy man of action (he won an Iron Man contest at the age of 
70) and a paramilitary specialist, Ward gives a straight forward though sanitized account of Phoenix in the Delta.
