While I found the detailed accounts of the actions taken to defend Khe Sanh fascinating, I especially enjoyed the life story of Captain Baig. Without giving away details included in the book, suffice to say that it was very interesting to read the events in Captain Baig's life that ultimately led to him occupying a command bunker in Viet Nam.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Gunpowder Prince and would strongly recommend it to other interested readers.
Mr Archer background and narrative provides an intense look inside the Khe Sanh command bunker before and during the bombardment of the base. A place where approximately seven thousand Marines, Navy seabees, Army and native troops were stationed to stifle the f!is or troops and armaments down the Ho Chi Minh trail. How the insight and valor of Capt.Baig, from a long tradition of warriors, contributed significantly to the defense of the base and it's survival.
The narrative is captivating and reads fluently, providing not only a superb background of the participants at Khe Sanh, but insight to thee U.S.
and North Vietnamese command structure and decision making process. This is a remarkable history of valor, commitment and loyalty that seems to be a standard in the defence of the combat base and the history of American involvement in Vietnam.
I highly recommend this book.
