Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

They ruled the air-and owned the land.

In the fall of 1965 the NVA changes its strategy, and sends its best troops on an assault that will rip Vietnam in half. Halfway around the world, a new American air-mobile force feverishly assembles and trains. And in a place called Pleiku, the two sides come together in a horrific bloody clash.

The were the swift, the fierce: the 1st Air Cav.

For one long furious month the newly formed Air Cavalry and the NVA went toe to toe, as the Air Cave unleashed a new form of helicopter warfare and the NVA sent human waves after American-held targets. In this classic book, journalist and military hero J.D. Coleman reconstructs the battles, the men who waged them, the forces that shaped them, and the extraordinary acts of military courage that made Pleiku a resounding U.S. victory-and the birthplace of air-mobile chopper war.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [322]-324) and index.
