Description

This is the story of the Vietnam War - not a chronological military history. It was an asymmetric war and this is an asymmetric story. A patrol on the last day was the same as a patrol on the first day - what hasn't been told so far is what really happened on patrols: how men fought, died and came back damaged in some way.
