Acclaimed historian Marshall captures the sweaty, blood-soaked action, individual acts of bravery, command breakdowns, and true minute-to-minute horror of close combat in a war that demanded more raw blind courage than any war Americans had ever fought. One of the few available accounts of the early battles of the Vietnam War.
