From the PublisherMilitary Review
[Search and Destroy] is a terrific book that tells the story of the 1-1st Cavalry Squadron...Like all of Nolan's books, this one tells its story from the first-hand accounts of the soldiers and junior officers who fought the war on the ground and from the extensive research of official Army records. Through interviews with dozens of 1-1st Cav veterans, Nolan tells it like it is, warts and all. There are accounts of breathtaking heroism, of leadership that ranges from superb and courageous to badly flawed, and disturbing accounts of atrocities and mindless violence against Vietnamese civilians...Vietnam veterans will enjoy this honest account of a cavalry squadron's experience during a difficult and challenging year of unrelenting combat.
