More About The Village by Bing West
 
 
 
Overview
In "Black Hawk Down, " the fight went on for a day. In "We Were Soldiers Once & Young, " the fighting lasted three days. In "The Village, " one Marine squad fought for 495 days half of them died.
Few American battles have been so extended, savage and personal. A handful of Americans volunteered to live among six thousand Vietnamese, training farmers to defend their village. Such Combined Action Platoons (CAPs) are now a lost footnote about how the war could have been fought; only the villagers remain to bear witness. This is the story of fifteen resolute young Americans matched against two hundred Viet Cong; how a CAP lived, fought and died. And why the villagers remember them to this day."
