Description

The story of one of the most heroic efforts in American military history - a 77-day struggle in early 1968 for the remote Khe Sanh combat base, during which 6,000 perilously isolated marines withstood the onslaught of a superior enemy force. Drawing on a vast archive of recorded interviews and written material collected over the past twenty years by Ronald J. Drez and the Eisenhower Center for American Studies at the University of New Orleans, Voices of Courage has a narrative written by Drez and Brinkley that interweaves testimonials from the soldiers into a gripping account of every aspect of the battle. The book also includes two audio CDs - 120 minutes of recordings in total - that allows readers to hear expanded accounts from the veterans in their own voices, introduced by legendary screen actor Stephen Lang. The din of political and social controversy surrounding the Vietnam War has often drowned out the voices of the soldiers who fought there. For the first time through this unique multimedia format, American soldiers will tell their stories from Vietnam.
