We Were Soldiers Once

If you enjoy military history this is an excellent book about the first major battle between the Americans and North Vietnamese Army.

At first I thought it was just a little long-winded but then realised that the author, Lt. Gen. Harold G. Moore, was making sure that every man who fought under his command at Ia Drang got his name mentioned.

A first class book. In fact this book is so good that I wouldn’t bother going to see the film as it would only spoil itfor me. (it's generally always best to see the film before you read the book. If you read the book first it's usually best to forgo the film.)
