    A book about a time many want to forget.

    Philip Keith has written a well rounded historical document about life of a Viet Nam combat soldier. It's too bad that such a book was not written during the war, maybe things would have been different for the returning soldier. Having been told not to wear the uniform and being called a " baby killer ", still does not sit well with me.

    Having been involved with this battle as a member of A Troop, I can attest to the book being factual. This should be require reading for any soldier and young person who thinking of joining the combat arms.

    You don't read much about armored units in Vietnam. This is a great book about the way it was for us cavalry troopers in the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, or any armored unit there at that time. You will not be able to put it down. Although the story is about one specific battle, It really tells it like it was for the guys who fought the ACAVs, Patton and Sheridan tanks in the Jungles of Soultheast Asia. I highly recommend it.

    This book is by far the most interesting and true story to ever come out the the entire Vietnam War period. The author Philip Keith was able to tell this story as if he was actually putting you there with these brave military units. Totally awesome. If you are a veteran of the Vietnam era, then you owe it to yourself to read this book. It is truely a tribute to all those brave soldier who served and died, their families, and all Americans. God bless the United States of America, and all veterans past and present, and those currently on active duty. Thank you Mr Keith for this amazingly book.

    Highly recommend.

    I was a member of Air Cav Troop of the 11ACR at the time this battle took place. This well written book made me even more proud to have been a part of this hard hitting unit that was never affraid to engage the enemy. It also made me proud that after four decades some of my brothers in arms were finally recognized for their heroic deeds. It is a great depiction of what life in the "boonies" of Vietnam was like. I think anyone who reads this book will feel a sense of pride in their countrymen that went to war and came home to a country that had turned its back on them.

    A book for anyone who needs to believe in the possibility of overcoming the impossible.

    Fabulously written book. At first, I got lost in the names and company numbers, but when the story finally started coming together and all the pieces started connecting, it was an amazing story.

    I knew how it was going to end, but I read all night long to find out HOW it ended that way when there seemed no possible way it could.

    I cried (I am a woman, and I cry) when General Casey took the controls of a helo and went in to get supplies to his men. Talk about a beautiful example of devoted leadership. No wonder his men loved him.

    Excellent book. Definitely one that is staying in my library.
