House to House by Keith William Nolan

Book Description

This work offers a detailed look at urban warfare. During the first days of May, 1968, several regiments of Viet Cong fighters quietly infiltrated the South Vietnamese capital city Saigon. With no chance of actually capturing the city, it was a suicide mission aimed at the already-battered hearts and minds of the American people who'd been rocked by the Tet Offensive just three months earlier. The story of what followed - a week-long battle in which the 9th Infantry Division drove the Viet Cong out of the capital - is told in all its gritty and gut-wrenching detail in House to House. Keith Nolan chronicles one of the most brutal engagements of the entire war - the U.S. Army's only house-to-house battle of Viet Nam - and reveals the hardwon lessons of Saigon, with their echoes resounding in the streets of Baghdad today.
