Summary
During the night of 6-7 February 1968, two dozen U.S. Army Green Berets and several hundred indigenous soldiers held off a numerically superior force of North Vietnamese tanks and infantry in one of the finest, most exciting examples of collective bravery, endurance, and will that any war has produced. Here for the first time is the full account of that violent, deadly stand by Special Forces Team A-101 at the tiny compound of Lang Vei. Making use of extensive interviews with survivors, recently uncovered oral histories, and official records, author William Phillips presents astounding tales of individual and team courage against overwhelming odds
