Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This honest, unflinching narrative presents the personal stories of the 25th Infantry--the division that inspired Oliver Stone's film, Platoon. Bergerud contends that the Vietnam War was lost in the field, where divisions like the 25th Infantry were obliged to fight in massive, expensive, and seemingly pointless campaigns against a stubborn, resilient enemy.

Synopsis:

"Extraordinary...recreates the Vietnam experience in visceral terms."—Col. Harry G. Sumniers, Jr., editor, Vietnam magazine.
