This thoroughly documented chronology of the April 1972 invasion of South Vietnam by the North Vietnamese Army, called the Easter Offensive, serves both as a historical lesson and a remarkable war memoir. On the Marine Corps Commandant's professional list for years, it is told with authority and compassion by a crucial player, an American Marine who was a senior advisor to the Vietnamese Marines. When first published in hardcover in 1984, it was a selection of the Military Book Club.
Col. Gerald H. Turley, USMC (Ret.), an accomplished author, was a career officer who served in Korea and South Vietnam and later received a presidential appointment as a Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (Readiness and Training). Now a defense consultant, he lives in Bluffton, SC.
