“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.”

“Presented here in graphic detail is an autographical account of the preliminary battle of Khe Sanh, the opener for the Tet Offensive of 1968, by the genuine American hero who commanded the American and South Vietnamese side. This under reported and close fought preliminary battle was engaged well outside of the famous Khe Sanh siege perimeter. As such, the work is both a primary historical source and interesting reading material for its own sake.”
