Description

By John A. Cash, et al. Includes accounts of various events in the Vietnam War from 1965 through 1968. Based on journals, reports, and interviews.

The events described in this small book are illustrative of much that took place in Vietnam after American troops were first committed in force in 1965: heroic achievement and sacrifice, human error, experimentation and innovation, a wily and elusive enemy, and a new dimension of warfare afforded by the helicopter.

These accounts serve as a preliminary record of the achievements of U.S. military members who served their nation well.  The narratives also serve as valuable lessons to soldiers pursuing lessons of small unit actions.
