About the Book
During the first half of 1969, the U.S. 4th Cavalry, 25th Infantry Division operated northwest of Saigon in the vicinity of Go Dau Ha, fighting in 15 actions on the Cambodian border, in the Boi Loi Woods, the Hobo Woods and Michelin Rubber Plantation and on the outskirts of Tay Ninh City. Third Squadron’s Bravo Troop saw 10 percent of its average field strength killed while inflicting heavier losses on the enemy. This memoir vividly recounts six months of intense combat in Vietnam through the eyes of an artillery forward observer, highlighting techniques of armored cavalry operations, the routines and frustrations of searching for the enemy and chaos of finding him.
