Fire In The Streets: The Battle For Hue, Tet 1968 is the definitive combat narrative of the bitter, hard-fought, running battle of the 1968 Communist Tet Offensive. Fire In The Streets is the vivid account of the only building-by-building, street-by-street city battle of the Vietnam War involving American troops. Readers will travel the mean, bloody streets of war-shattered Hue with veteran bush Marines who must learn the deadly cat-and-mouse game one terrifying step at a time, and join two outnumbered Air Cavalry battalions as they struggle and die to cut off Hue's embattled Communist fighters from outside help. Both a primer for modern war in an urban environment and a thundering testament to the brave Marines and soldiers who wrested Vietnam's hallowed royal city from the best troops North Vietnam ever fielded, Fire In The Streets is a thrilling read that cannot be put down until the final objective has been secured and the final shot has been fired. Fire In The Streets is the definitive book on the the battle for Hue. -- Midwest Book Review
