The true story of the battle of Xom Bo II that was fought on June 17, 1967. It was a battle that pitted 500 1st Infantry Division soldiers against 800 to 2000 Viet Cong from the 271st Regiment. The bloody clash took the lives of 39 Americans and seriously wounded 150 more. It is the minute-by-minute story of what happened that day in the steamy jungle and the story of the men who fought so valiantly to survive the ambush.

David Hearne does an excellent job paying respect to those who fought on that day. He gives those soldiers who fought a voice! Some of them couldn't speak for themselves and the ones who couldn't bear to speak of the horrors of war .The bound between men that is hard to comprehend , unless you were there, is expressed in every chapter. He brings you into the lives of the men who above all odds stood tall and brave on that day.
David H. explains word by word the bravery , valor, and sacrifice of our soldiers. This book is only one day in their lives, but for some it was their last! This book is a great read and we'll worth the time and money! I salute Mr David Hearne for his service to our country, and for keeping the true events of that day alive in honor of his comrades in arms!
