Dak To : America's Sky Soldiers in South Vietnam's Central Highlands
by Edward Murphy




Overview -
“Excellent . . . honest and realistic . . . Edward Murphy’s meticulous research is unflawed and his writing style is novel-like.”—San Antonio Express-News

“A no-holds barred account . . . highly recommended.”—Military magazine


In June 1967, General William Westmoreland sent the 173d Airborne Brigade to Dak To, a mountainous region in the deadly Central Highlands. Here the 173d found itself locked in mortal combat, facing tremendous odds against a professional, well-trained enemy hidden under triple-canopy jungle and deeply entrenched in fortified positions, bunkers, and tunnels.

Edward F. Murray captures the conflict in all its horror and heroism in this graphic account drawn from letters, diaries, official reports, and interviews with more than eighty veterans of the campaign. Outmanned, exhausted, often cut off from supplies and communication, America’s “Sky Soldiers” battled back with incredible valor to rout the NVA in some of the fiercest combat of the entire Vietnam War.

“Fast-paced . . . an impressive immediacy.”—Publishers Weekly
