“Expendable Warriors’ is an autobiographical account of the battle of Khe Sanh by one of the genuine American heroes of the 1968 Tet Offensive. That alone makes the work both a primary historical source and interesting reading material…[B]eyond history and autobiography, Col. Clarke offers two significant criticisms of the way the Vietnam War was fought: the lack of unity of command, and the misguided attempt to measure victory by body count. Professional and amateur historians will appreciate this text, and so will teachers of political and military science, as well as teachers of international relations.”

“I’m honored that Bruce Clarke has portrayed the bravery of not only the Americans but all of us who fought and won the largest ground battle of the siege of Khe Sanh. We believed in our cause and dedicated our lives to it and this book clearly illustrates what many efforts about the Vietnam War do not–the bravery and efforts of the warriors who fought beside the Americans in the Vietnam War.  The spirits of the ARVN soldiers who lost their lives at Khe Sanh would smile and say ” Cam õn Ðaị Ta” Clarke  (Thank you COL Clarke) because their sacrifice has not been totally forgotten.”
