5.0 out of 5 stars An eye opener to the realities of a fierce and bloody war, 8 April 2002
Let. General Moore and Joe Galloway have provided an accurate and bloody portrayal of what happened at LZ Z-Ray and LZ Albany in the opening days of the Vietnam war.
In it, you'll discover act of heroism, bravery and courage in the line of fire such as Thomas Metsker who gave his place in the helicopter evacuating the wounded to a more seriously wounded soldier, only to see him die as he placed the injured man on the helicopter. Thomas Metsker is just one of the many men whose tale is told with remarkable clarity by the survivors.
There are poignant moments in the aftermath from the wives and children when they relate what happened to them, when they discovered their loved one would never be coming home and it was heart-warming to read about what happened to the survivors when the story ended.
When you have finished reading the book, go and see the film. It's not as accurate but still good.
