Item Description

In the spring of 1972, North Vietnam launched a massive military offensive designed to deliver the coup de grâce to South Vietnam and its rapidly disengaging American ally. But an overconfident Hanoi misjudged its opponents who, led by American military advisers and backed by American airpower, were able to hold off the North's onslaught in what became the biggest battle of a very long war. Dale Andradé rescues this epic engagement from its previous neglect to tell a riveting tale of heroism against great odds. "One of the best books on the Vietnam War."--Washington Post Book World Dale Andradé, a historian at the U.S. Army Center of Military History, is the author of Ashes to Ashes: The Phoenix Program and the Vietnam War and coauthor of Spies and Commandos: How America Lost the Secret War in North Vietnam.
