Vietnam 1968: Turning Point is about the turning point of the war in Vietnam. The book is a memoir and weaves together three stories. The first story is about the personal experiences of Captain David V. Mastran, an eye witness to the war as a member of the general staff at Headquarters 7th Air Force in Saigon. The second provides the background to the war and describes the major military campaigns fought in 1968. And the third describes the highly classified project he worked on to evaluate McNamara's Wall, the most expensive new technology introduced in the war. The common theme that unifies these stories is the truth of what happened during that fateful year. The book includes the lessons learned and not learned in Vietnam and concludes that the war may have been a disaster for the U.S., but it created strong bonds among the men and women who served, fought, and died there.
