Full Description:

Col. Ha Mai Viet presents a historically accurate and detailed account of the Vietnam War from the perspective of the South Vietnamese armor forces. Highly decorated for his valor and leadership of the armored units, the author spent ten years documenting what went on so he could offer an analysis of the war based on facts. He interviewed hundreds of people, including all senior South Vietnamese officers involved and many of lesser rank, as well as American advisers. Viet tells the story without glossing over the shortcomings of his fellow soldiers. His efforts serve as an invaluable record of his army's organization, combat operations, and interaction with U.S. advisers. Published in cooperation with the Association of the United States Army.

Col. Ha Mai Viet spent twenty-one years in the Army of the Republic of Vietnam, commanding armored units and serving as an assistant division commander. He was also the chief of Quang Tri Province. He came to the United States with his family in 1975.
