Summary
"Keep your heads down and your eyes open-- In Dong Xoai, Vietnam 1965, legendary author and artist Joe Kubert tells an incredible tale of bravery and camaraderie under fire-- a searing look at the true cost of freedom and the horrors of war. Based on actual events, this is the inside story of a team of Special Forces soldiers who were on what was to be a simple assistance and observation mission in the village of Dong Xoai that suddenly turned deadly. Pinned down and facing a never-ending tide of Viet Cong fighters, they have no choice but to stand shoulder-to-shoulder and fight for their lives. Written as an original graphic novel with text and illustrations, Dong Xoai, Vietnam 1965 is based on firsthand information from the surviving members of the soldiers involved and includes an afterword and extensive field notes compiled by the real members of Special Forces Detachment A-342, 5th Special Forces Group" -- dust jacket back.
