In 1968 in South Vietnam, a U.S. infantry battalion was ordered to charge a fortified North Vietnamese Army force 200 yards away over an open field with no artillery or air support. The defenders had every advantage. The Americans started moving across the field just before noon, every man a target. By the time they reached the tree line at the other side of the open field, nearly one half of. In 1968 in South Vietnam, a U.S. infantry battalion was ordered to charge a fortified North Vietnamese Army force 200 yards away over an open field with no artillery or air support. The defenders had every advantage. The Americans started moving across the field just before noon, every man a target. By the time they reached the tree line at the other side of the open field, nearly one half of the 400-man battalion was a casualty. Nine long, agonizing hours afterwards, U.S. artillery units began support fire, although the units remained desperately short of ammunition. The entrapped men saw their fate: death or captivity. Help from headquarters was neither offered or available. The following night the battalion commander decided to make a run for it. It was a gamble with high stakes. But the battalion did make it through enemy lines to a mountaintop where the NVA could not follow. When the Lost Battalion finally escaped encirclement, after nine hours with no artillery or air support, and 30 hours of fighting against an enemy that outnumbered them three to one, the tragic episode disappeared from official memory and relevant U.S. Army records-as if nothing had happened. Krohn tells the whole story-and it tells it with the words of those present. That some of the testimony comes from those responsible is remarkable.

New York: Praeger Publishers, 1993. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/near fine. As New in all respects, clean, crisp, unread. First printing, full number line. From Publishers Weekly: "Krohn, who served as the unit's intelligence officer, draws an instructive comparison between two drastically different battles fought in early 1968 by the 2nd Battalion, 12th Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division. In the first, 2/12 successfully withstood a North Vietnamese assault on firebase LZ Ross in the Que Son Valley. Essential to that success was the abundance of artillery and air support and adequate ammunition. Monsoon weather, logistical bungling and poor command decisions at divisional level, dictated that 2/12 went into the second battle, outside of Hue City, without air or artillery support. The battalion was surrounded by the enemy and began to run out of ammunition. As casualties mounted, the unit commander, Lt. Col. Richard Sweet, decided to walk his troops out of the encirclement under the cover of darkness. Led by "the ultimate point man," Private Hector L. Cammacho, the bold maneuver succeeded. Krohn, a retired lieutenant colonel, calls for stateside training in which infantry battalions practice operations after vital support systems have faltered. His first-rate account demonstrates what can happen in combat when such systems do break down. " Most items ship with tracking numbers and (generally over $15.00) jacket protectors if applicable. Clean recycled packing material will be used when possible. , Praeger Publishers, 1993
