This is the incredible true story of a brave military unit in Vietnam that risked everything to rescue an outnumbered troop under heavy fire-and the 39-year odyssey to recognize their bravery.

I spend about 55 hours a week driving and really enjoy having a good book to pass the miles.
I really enjoyed this story. It was along the lines of We Were Soldiers Once, and Young. I have never been a fan of Dick Hill. Whatever he reads is Dick Hill reading the story. He is so slow at times I thought my download might have had a bug or error. Overall I enjoyed the story of intense combat in the latter days of the Vietnam war. If you can stand the monotone reading it is worth the price. Don't listen to Dick Hill while driving...
having been in that particular nasty place I can understand what they were involved in
The fact that we smoked the NVA.
The harrowing tale of being in the bunker areas that were so well hidden until you were upon them without the knowledge of them being there until the air was ripped by the sound of automatic weapons fire.
I served in Nam and new of friends who served with th 11th Cav. I have never heard of this story. It does not surprise me that there is no record of this battle. I was awarded a Bronze star for action in I Corp. but never had a write up for it, and later was only awarded one bronze star from a different action. The clerks in the rear wrote themselves up for all kinds of awards yet were never in combat. Alot of veterans never recieved awards they had earned.
