Reviews

  • "Between experiencing combat and reading about it lies a vast chasm. This book makes you almost smell it"

    Wall Street Journal
  • "A stunning achievement... I read it and thought of The Red Badge of Courage, the highest compliment I can think of"

    David Halberstam
  • "The best account of infantry combat I have ever read, and the most significant book to come out of the Vietnam War"

    Colonel David Hackworth
  • "There are stories here that freeze the blood... The men who fought at Ia Drang could have no finer memorial"

    The New York Times Book Review
  • "If you want to know what is was like to go to Vietnam as a young American... and find yourself caught in ferocious, remorseless combat with an enemy as courageous and idealistic as you were, then you must read this book. Moore and Galloway have captured the terror and exhilaration, the comradeship and self-sacrifice, the brutality and compassion that are the dark heart of war"
