Very Good/Very Good. Voices of Courage The Battle for Khe Sanh, Vietnam Ronald J. Drez and Douglas Brinkley "The battle ... would hold the world on the edge of its seat [and] bring the opposing warriors face-to-face in a grim test of nerves and endurance." -Ronald J. Drez and Douglas Brinkley Against a superior enemy force bent on their annihilation, six thousand Marines held the remote Khe Sanh Combat Base and emerged victorious from the most important battle of the Vietnam War. The fact that their effort was "ignored by their president, the press, the television reporters, and the American people" makes this new history from bestselling authors Ronald J. Drez and Douglas Brinkley even more important. Finally, through this unique multimedia format, the voices of Khe Sanh veterans are collected and heard, providing readers an intimate look at, and new appreciation for, the courage of the Marines and other servicemen who fought at Khe Sanh. On the strength of soldiers' firsthand testimonials, Drez and Brinkley deliver gripping battle accounts that follow Marines into their foxholes and bunkers during seemingly unending volleys of incoming rocket and mortar fire, and into hand-to-hand combat as they struggle to hold their lines during fierce enemy ground attacks. Two sixty-minute audio CDs feature testimonials and interviews from Khe Sanh veterans, many conducted within days of the actions they recall. Contextualized amid the political and social controversy that surrounded the Vietnam War, Voices of Courage stands as a tribute to the Marines who fought at Khe Sanh and reshapes the way we remember all of the soldiers who answered their nation's call to duty and fought with honor and bravery in Vietnam. 124 black-and-white photographs CD DISC #1 IS MISSING ISBN 0-8212-6196-7 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. <br/><br/> <br/><br/>
