Parameters


The Vietnam War remains deep in the nation s consciousness. It is vital that we know exactly what happened there and who made it happen. This book provides a complete account of American Army ground combat forces who they were, how they got to the battlefield, and what they did there. Year by year, battlefield by battlefield, the narrative follows the war in extraordinary, gripping detail. Over the course of the decade, the changes in fighting and in the combat troops themselves are described and documented. The Rise and Fall of an American Army represents the first total battlefield history of Army ground forces in the Vietnam War, containing much previously unreleased archival material. It re-creates the feel of battle with dramatic precision.
Stanton s writing . . . gives the reader a terrifying graphic description of combat in the many mini-environments of Vietnam.
