We Were Soldiers Once...and Young: Ia Drang - the Battle That Changed the War in Vietnam
Thank you! Almost as soon as they arrived, American forces were engaged in a series of constant- contact clashes with two full regiments of NVA regulars in what came to be known as the Pleiku campaign. A considerable, if costly, triumph for US arms, these bloody engagements covered for UPI by Galloway were also the first in which the US made a substantive commitment of troops. Drawing on their own experiences, interviews with other participants, after-action reports, captured documents, and allied sources, the authors recall the four hellish days and nights of combat in or around helicopter landing zones that pitted elements of the 7th Cavalry Custer's outfit against a determined foe fighting on his home ground. Their harrowing account offers telling detail on the savage battles that raged in the ravines and hills below the Chu Pong massif.
