2."And We Were Soldiers" book of the Mel Gibson film in Vietnam.Watching the film gives you no idea re.the amount of men they really lost and the heroism shown in that battle.
It was a new idea about warfare,drop the men in by Helo,they never knew you don't drop them in the middle of a North Vietnam regiment thirsting for war. Another VG factual book
