Boston 1991, Houghton Mifflin, First US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, Fine/Fine condition. xxi, 551 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. HERE FOR THE FIRST TIME IS THE complete history of the pivotal battle of the Vietnam War, that grimy, bloody face-off known as the Siege of Khe Sanh. As the first formal military history of this crucial battle, Valley of Decision is unique among the many books about the Vietnam conflict published in recent years: its comprehensiveness will satisfy the most demanding specialist; its sense of drama and action and its use of on-the-scene testimony will intrigue any general reader interested in the most controversial war in U.S. history.John Prados, a brilliant young historian and researcher, has been able to uncover secret U.S. government records -especially communications between General William Westmoreland and his superiors in Washington-and North Vietnamese Army material. Equally important, the book draws on thousands of pages of notes, personal letters, diaries, and eyewitness accounts collected over two decades by coauthor Ray W. Stubbe, the renowned "Chaplain of Khe Sanh, " who lived through every day of the action.A careful weave of document and narrative, Valley of Decision tells the whole incredible story. Here is the larger political context, the generals and colonels, the Pentagon and the Oval Office. Here are the patrols day and night, the sound of mortar and machine gun, the tactics on the first electronic battlefields in the history of warfare-and more, here are the words and deeds of the men of Khe Sanh.This book advances our knowledge of every facet of the Khe Sanh campaign. Nothing in print today even comes close. N° de ref. de la librería
