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.

This is the two-fold mission of the US Army's Special Forces, the 'Green Berets'. David Isby investigates their most famous missions from POW rescues at the end o... View more info

In this study, Dr. Donald J. Mrozek probes various groups of Americans as they come to grips with the consequences of the Vietnam War.

Yet it will serve its author's purpose if something here provokes creative thinking and critical reexamination, even of some long-cherished ideas.

Light wear. This book is still required reading at Forts Benning and Leavenworth (and some Marine commands), because it fully details the Islamists' yet-to-be-defeated 4GW method. That method is best countered by "light" infantry tactics, but America has had only "line" infantry since 1943. Its modern sequel travels mostly by truck and fights mostly with supporting arms. That's because the Pentagon still practices a "higher-tech" version of 2GW (killing as many enemy as ... View more info
