When Colonel Moore asked Joe Galloway, war correspondent, why the he didn't tell the true stories going on in Vietnam like the battle for the Ia Drang valley, he said " we send them in to our editors back in the US who don't print them." Read here why. It's a sad indictment of our media.

Gripping story of the men who served in Vietnam, and the challenges they faced. So many heroes who served with distinction and honor. God bless you all!!!

A classic that shouldn't be missed and this book is one that rates right up there as one of my top three books from the Vietnam War. Recommended.
