A vivid account of the 1970 springtime campaigns of the U.S. Army in South Vietnam along the Cambodia border, told from the soldier’s perspective with detailed battlefield tales

“Most of us remember [the 1970 Cambodian campaign] for the killings of four young people at Kent State. [Keith] Nolan wants us to remember that it killed a lot of young Americans in Cambodia as well.”The Capital Times

“This is combat narrative at its best. Nolan has mastered the soldier’s slang and weaves it expertly into the account. . . . A compelling read, and a valuable addition to the growing body of Vietnam literature.”Military Review

Focuses on the Indochina War in 1970, most specifically the springtime campaigns of the US Army in South Vietnam along the border with Cambodia, and the dramatic summertime offensive into Cambodia authorized by President Nixon.
