Description

Brigadier General John C. "Doc" Bahnsen, Jr. One of America's most decorated soldiers in the Vietnam War. The ultimate warrior who engaged the enemy from nearly every type of aircraft and armored vehicle in the Army's inventory. An expert strategist who developed military tactics later adopted as doctrine. A revered leader ready to plunge into the thick of battle with his bare hands...From Fort Knox to the front lines, accounts of Doc's brilliance in time of war became the stuff of legend--stories that are told with reverence to this day, inspiring raw recruits as well as America's future leaders. Now, drawing on his own recollections, as well as those of the men who fought beside him, Doc Bahnsen gives a full, uncensored account of his astonishing war record--and an unforgettable ground-level view of the day-to-day realities of serving one's country."Spellbinding. . .a must-read."--Thomas E. White, Jr.,18th Secretary of the Army"Uncensored, raw, and striking. . .I recommend it highly."--General Barry R. McCaffrey"Packed with heaps of heroism, courage, sacrifice, controvery--and a dash of humor."--Major General James L. Dozier"This book explodes like a hand grenade. Be ready for a hell of a read!"--Lieutenant General Hank Emerson**Main Selection of the Military Book Club**
