    Story
    (24)

    In the early morning hours of April 1, 1970, more than four hundred North Vietnamese soldiers charged out into the open and tried to overrun FSB Illingworth. The battle went on, mostly in the dark, for hours. Exposed ammunition canisters were hit and blew up, causing a thunderous explosion inside the FSB that left dust so thick it jammed the hand-held weapons of the GIs. Much of the combat was hand-to-hand. In all, twenty-four Americans lost their lives and another fifty-four were wounded.

    Pamela Dale Foster says: "The Most of Courageous Soldier's"
    "An Answer To So Many Questions"

    Where does Fire Base Illingworth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book and its reading rank as high as any for me, only in part because of a personal connection I have to FSB Illingworth.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ralph Jones. I can easily relate to him because he is from Cincinnati and was on the 2/32 8 inch Howitzer as was I.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Having been there (April 1st, 1971- exactly one year after the attack on FSB Illingworth) I can picture the entire event. I might not use the word "favorite" though.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My extreme reaction was one of appreciation for the author doing this book. Because I knew of this event, I always felt it deserved this outstanding recognition.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you... this book fills in many gaps to my memories. God Bless.
