The remarkable story of unprepared marines and Khmer Rouge combat veterans in a 14 hour battle that won medals and cost lives

In addition to a comprehensive narrative of the planning and the battle itself, the book contains over 30 first person accounts by Koh Tang veterans and unpublished photographs taken by veterans while engaged with the enemy. The appendices include verbatim minutes of NSC discussions and decisions regarding the strategy and tactics to be carried out by local commanders, U.S. Marine Corps Post Action and Investigative reports and the latest information on what happened to those three Marines left behind.
