“Colonel Clarke’s analysis of the events around Khe Sanh is must reading for future combat leaders. In fact, it should be read by everyone.  We should all heed Bruce’s admonition that ‘We need to learn from our mistakes and ensure that we don’t repeat them.  We owe it to the next generation of brave soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines that they will not have to endure similar tests of their courage and determination.’”

General Jack Vessey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff 1982-85

“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.”
