Description - Khe Sanh by Eric Hammel
The highly-acclaimed history of the siege of Khe Sanh from January to April 1968, using the accounts of 100 participants. Eric Hammel's classic account of the battle at Khe Sanh is a vivid oral history, using the words of American fighting men caught up in the gruelling, deadly seventy-seven-day ordeal create a harrowing tapestry of tragedy and triumph. The gripping and moving narrative flows from the masterfully woven threads provided by nearly a hundred men who gallantly endured the wrenching allout struggle to hold the combat base and its vulnerable outlying positions. Re-issued in the fiftieth anniversary year of the siege, with an updated photo section and maps, this is a ground-breaking and influential history of this crucial landmark battle. AUTHOR: Eric Hammel's writing career began in the 1960s, when he was a teenager. He has had fifty military history books, two novels, and more than seventy non-fiction articles published.
