Description - The Hill Fights by Edward F. Murphy

Khe Sanh is a familiar name to Vietnam veterans and historians alike because of the famous siege of 1968. But one year earlier savage combat raged around the former Special Forces camp in one of the bloodiest battles fought by the U.S. Marine Corps. Long overlooked in the history of America's war in Vietnam, these deadly hill fights are, for the first time and in vivid detail, brought to life by noted military historian Edward F. Murphy. Rare insight into one of the most brutal and costly battles in marine history Controversial example of the introduction of the unreliable M-16 rifle into combat Based on interviews of participants and contemporary documents
