Sappers in the Wire by Keith William Nolan

Book Description

This dramatic narrative recounts the last high-casualty U.S. action in the Vietnam War. Military leaders and historians have attributed the disaster to a dereliction of duty in the ranks, but Nolan's interviews and research in declassified documents reveal that the 1971 incident had much in common with any surprise attack in which the officers are killed outright. He presents an intimate look at soldiers who performed in exemplary fashion under terrible circumstances.

This is combat narrative at its best. Nolan has mastered the soldier's slang and weaves it expertly into the account...full of combat anecdotes detailing battlefield leadership successes and failures.--Military Review
