Summary
"In the tradition of We Were Soldiers Once...and Young, A Noble Cause is a stirring tribute to the valor and courage of the allied forces in the Vietnam War and a vivid re-creation of hard-won battles from Ia Drang Valley to Khe Sanh and Hamburger Hill... Celebrating the skill and bravery of the United States armed forces and their South Vietnamese allies, A Noble Cause presents a gripping chronicle of both large and small unit successful combat engagements, including the Battle of Dong Xoai (1965); the Battle of Ia Drang Valley (1965), the first major ground battle of the Vietnam War; the Battle of Loc Ninh (1967) by the Cambodian border; the Battle of Khe Sanh (1967-1968) leading up to the Tet Offensive; the Battle of Dong Ha (1968); the bloody siege on Hamburger Hill (1969); and the Battle of An Loc (1972), sixty-five miles north of Saigon, which contributed to the failure of the Vietcong's Eastertide Offensive. Documenting the invaluable role of a tireless and determined infantry as well as air cavalry divisions and B-52 'Arc Light' air strikes, A Noble Cause chronicles the crucial strategic decisions that led to victory--often against steep odds--and honors the bravery of every soldier who stood his ground, faced the enemy, and gave his all. Includes photos and and maps"--
