Surrounded by two divisions of North Vietnamese soldiers and resupplied entirely by air, hungry and thirsty U.S. Marines engaged in some of the most savage hand-to-hand combat of the entire war. The vividly detailed recollections of key participants place readers at the heart of the action, as mortars fall continuously and Marines struggle to cut down the enemy. A gripping narrative that illustrates the harrowing nature of a battle in which superior American fire and air power proved decisive, but at a terrible cost.
