“A RICH BLEND OF COMMAND STRATEGY AND HEROIC INDIVIDUAL EXPLOITS . . . An interesting and highly readable account of Marine Corps infantry operations in South Vietnam [that] perfectly captures the spirit of the gallant men who fought the battles and took the casualties.”
—GEN RAYMOND G. DAVIS, USMC (Ret.)
Former commanding general
of the 3d Marine Division in Vietnam (1968-69)
From their early days in 1965 when the order of the day was to drive the insurgent Viet Cong from the villages around Da Nang to the final, dramatic evacuation of Saigon ten years later, Semper Fi—Vietnam relates the whole gutsy, glorious saga of the Marines in Vietnam in stark, riveting detail.
“A compelling and in-depth history of the Marine Corps ground campaigns in the Vietnam War from 1965 to 1975. This dramatic account of the principle USMA combat engagements in that long and bitter struggle provides a vivid look at the campaigns that is written primarily from the perspective of the troops who fought them. . . . Covers the campaigns and engagements . . . in considerable and meticulous detail.”
