VOICES OF COURAGE: THE BATTLE FOR KHE SANH, VIETNAM
FROM THE PUBLISHER BULFINCH PRESS
AUTHORS: RONALD DREZ AND DOUGLAS BRINKLEY
Voices of Courage: The Battle for Khe Sanh, Vietnam tells the story of one of the most heroic efforts in American military history–a seventy-seven day struggle in early 1968 for the remote Khe Sanh Combat Base–during which six thousand perilously isolated Marines withstood the onslaught of a superior enemy force.
Drawing on a vast archive of recorded interviews and written material collected over the past twenty years by Ronald J. Drez and the Eisenhower Center for American Studies at the University of New Orleans, authors Drez and Douglas Brinkley provide a gripping narrative addressing every aspect of the battle, interwoven with testimonials from soldiers who fought at Khe Sanh.
Featuring two audio CDs that provide a unique opportunity for these valorous voices to be heard, Voices of Courage urges a long overdue recognition of the stunning fortitude displayed by Marines and other members of the U.S. Armed Forces at Khe Sanh, and promises to reshape the way we remember the Americans who fought for their nation in Vietnam.
“Its author Captain Ronald Drez is not only a good writer, but a wise leader who commanded Hotel 2/5 in 1968 – 1969” —Larry D. Tyler, Hotel25vv.com
