Seven Firefights in Vietnam


Seven Firefights in Vietnam Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The events described in this small book are illustrative of much that took place in Vietnam after American troops were first committed in force in 1965; of heroic achievement and sacrifice, of human error, of experimentation and innovation, of a wily and elusive enemy, and of a new dimension of warfare afforded by the helicopter.

These accounts serve as a preliminary record of the achievements of men who served their nation well, a preface to a full military history of the war that is in preparation.  The narratives also serve as valuable lessons to soldiers pursuing lessons of small unit actions.


CMH Pub 70-4. By John A. Cash, et al. Includes accounts of various events in the Vietnam War from 1965 through 1968. Based on journals, reports, and interviews. L.C. card 70-605212.
