    Story
    (16)

    Few American battles have been so extended, savage, and personal. A handful of Americans volunteered to live among six thousand Vietnamese, training farmers to defend their village. Such "Combined Action Platoons" (CAPs) are not a lost footnote about how the war could have been fought; only the villagers remain to bear witness. This is the story of 15 resolute young Americans matched against two hundred Viet Cong; how a CAP lived, fought, and died; and why the villagers remember them to this day.

    Jonathan P. Showalter says: "An enjoyable read!"

    Would you listen to The Village again? Why?

    The Village is a good guide for leadership who are looking for guidance in difficult situations.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are quite a few humorous shenanigans that take place when you bring marines together. Hiding prostitutes from a high ranking officer was my favorite scene. Don't be mislead though, there is a detailed history here of why the Marines are in the village that will satisfy anyone who is curious about Vietnam in the 1960s.
