Small unit action in Vietnam Summer 1966

Pretty good. A little one sided in presenting all things Marine as almost perfect. Glossed over many realities of combat.

Small units , big action in Vietnam. Heroes tales.

good read, highly recommend for anyone interested in knowing about tactical strategies in a firefight. these marine's were outnumbered and had fire superiority against them, yet, discipline and leadership saved the day. they are all heroes and America owes them a debit of gratitude. God bless our men and women in uniform.

Do you know what an L ambush is? Neither did I til I read this book. The author wrote this book after his first tour as an instruction for the Army and for future soldiers in Vietnam. Like S.L.A. Marshall, he gives a well-written account of these Company sized battles.

Great Read

A very well written book that parallels some other stories about Marines in Vietnam. I highly recommend. An awesome read.
