A moving account of one of Vietnam's most savage battles, this book presents a tale of endurance, self-sacrifice and friendship. It is based on hundreds of interviews of men who fought there, including North Vietnamese commanders. In November 1965, some 450 men of the 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry, under Lt. Col. Hal Moore's command, were dropped by helicopter into a small clearing in the Ia Drang Valley. They were immediately surrounded by 2,000 North Vietnamese soldiers. Three days later, only two and a half miles away, a sister battalion was chopped to pieces. Together, these actions at the landing zones X-Ray and Albany constituted one of the Vietnam War's most significant battles. How these men persevered makes a vivid portrait of war at its most inspiring and devastating. General Moore and Joseph Galloway, the only journalist on the ground throughout the fighting, have interviewed hundreds of men who fought there, including the North Vietnamese commanders. This dramatic account presents a picture of men facing the ultimate challenge and dealing with it in ways they would have found unimaginable only a few hours earlier. It reveals to us, as rarely before, man's most heroic and horrendous endeavor.

"'A gut-wrenching account of what war is really about, which should be a "must" read' - General Norman Schwarzkopf 'Between experiencing combat and reading about it lies a vast chasm. But this book makes you almost smell it' - Wall Street Journal 'There are stories here that freeze the blood... The men who fought at Ia Drang could have no finer memorial' - New York Times Book Review"
