kept them in the fight and not ovverrun, until air could be brought in.
I really liked this book because the Marines had real personalities and the combat was intense, the emotions strong, and the lighter moments were delightful.
This book doesn't get bogged down in the overall strategies or the way the politicians threw it all away.
He tells of the gust and glory of Marines fighting for the guy next to him against some tenacious VC .
I highly recommend this book to everyone as an exciting narration of an important part of American history.
In my opinion if westmorland had fought the small unit way of the USMC rather than his ww2/ Korea mindset not only would casualties have been lower, but more would have been achieved to the point were I believe the south would have been able to do it all themselves and not have the financial support taken away by a leftist congresses in 1973.
A great read written at the time so it doesn't have any 20/20 hindsight Monday-morning quarterbacking!
I would recommend this book for study and enjoyment. The illustrations allow you to visualize the fire and maneuver. Well done.
