New York Times Bestseller: A “powerful and epic story . . . the best account of infantry combat I have ever read” (Col. David Hackworth, author of About Face). In November 1965, some 450 men of the First Battalion, Seventh Cavalry, under the command of Lt. Col. Harold Moore, were dropped into a small clearing in the Ia Drang Valley. They were immediately surrounded by 2,000 North Vietnamese soldiers. Three days later, only two and a half miles away, a sister battalion was brutally slaughtered. Together, these actions at the landing zones X-Ray and Albany constituted one of the most savage and significant battles of the Vietnam War. They were the first major engagements between the US Army and the People’s Army of Vietnam. How these Americans persevered—sacrificing themselves for their comrades and never giving up—creates a vivid portrait of war at its most devastating and inspiring. Lt. Gen. Moore and Joseph L. Galloway—the only journalist on the ground throughout the fighting—interviewed hundreds of men who fought in the battle, including the North Vietnamese commanders. Their poignant account rises above the ordeal it chronicles to depict men facing the ultimate challenge, dealing with it in ways they would have once found unimaginable. It reveals to us, as rarely before, man’s most heroic and horrendous endeavor.

"Ich habe Osama bin Laden getötet!" Abbottabad, Pakistan. Es ist der 2. Mai 2011. Zehn Jahre nach 9/11. Ein bewaffneter Navy SEAL stürmt in das Zimmer. Er hat den al-Qaida-Anführer direkt im Visier, zielt auf seinen Kopf. Dann drückt er ab. Robert O'Neill ist der Mann, der Amerikas Staatsfeind Nr. 1 getötet hat. In seiner Autobiografie beschreibt er detailliert, wie seine Kameraden und er vorgegangen sind und wie die letzten Sekunden im Leben des Terroristenführers aussahen. 16 Jahre lang hat er für sein Vaterland gekämpft. Die lange Ausbildung und das harte Training haben ihn geformt. Eindrücklich erzählt er, wie es sich anfühlt, einen Kameraden nach dem anderen zu verlieren und sich nie sicher zu sein, ob man Frau und Kinder jemals wieder sehen wird. Der Operator ist das Zeugnis eines außergewöhnlichen Menschen und gewährt einen faszinierenden Einblick in eine Mission, die einen der wichtigsten Siege im Kampf gegen den islamistischen Terrorismus markiert.

This book provides a comprehensive narrative history of U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia, from 1942 to 1975--with a concluding section that traces U.S.-Vietnam relations from the end of the war in 1975 to the present. Unlike most general histories of U.S. involvement in Vietnam--which are either conventional diplomatic or military histories--this volume synthesizes the perspectives to explore both dimensions of the struggle in greater depth, elucidating more of the complexities of the U.S.-Vietnam entanglement. It explains why Americans tried so hard for so long to stop the spread of Communism into Indochina, and why they failed. Key topics: The Fall of Saigon: The End as Prelude. Vietnam: A Place and A People. The Elephant and the Tiger. An Experiment in Nation Building. Raising the Stakes. Going to War. The Chain of Thunders. The Year of the Monkey. A War to End a War. The End of the Tunnel. Market: For anyone curious to know about the long American involvement in Southeast Asia, 1942-1975.
