"The most comprehensive and accurate examination of one of the least studied and least understood theaters--the Central Highlands--in what Americans came to call the Vietnam War (or what the Vietnamese called the Second Indochina War, following France's defeat in 1954). Focusing on the 1960-1965 period, Harris provides a detailed look at and evaluation of military operations by both sides, culminating in three chapters devoted to the famous battles in the Ia Drang river valley"-- Provided by publisher.
