Great Battles of the Vietnam War
Great Battles of the Vietnam War
Carhart, Tom
Because of the controversy surrounding this war, few details of the confrontations are accessible to the reading public, and several myths have prevailed. One is that the Vietnam War had no true battles in the sense of engagements between large forces in set times and places. The second myth is that US forces, despite superior hardware and firepower, were consistently defeated by undertrained and underarmed Vietnamese troops. This book dispels both these myths, and others. Years of military experience in Vietnam give Tom Carhart unique qualifications for this detailed and gripping account of the major battles of the war. Over two hundred and thirty pictures, black-and-white and colour, and military maps fo the scenes of battle contribute to new insights on 'the never-ending war' created by this important contribution to the literature.
