I expected more from this book, as it was written by an experienced Marine officer. It's not that he didn't do his homework: lots of research and a certain number of personal interviews provide the reader with enough facts regarding the Lang Vei fight. The problem lies in the actual account of the battle, which I found detached and unfocused. I would also like to have seen a little more detail from the author's interviews with survivors. In spite of the foregoing, I believe that the book is an honest effort at impartially detailing the events pertaining to the battle of Lang Vei and therefore worth the read.
