5.0 out of 5 stars The Battle of Hue City rates right up there with some of the greatest battles the Marines have ever fought
Reviewed in the United States on July 10, 2017
Mark Bowden is an outstanding writer. I read a lot of books about Vietnam and Mr. Bowden goes into so much detail, that you really can put yourself right there in the battle. In fact, I was there. On January 31st 1968 I was with Echo battery2/11 in Phu Bai, the night the TET offensive started. We supported 2/5 at the time. Although I didn't set foot in Hue at the time of the battle, we dropped some 155mm shells on the city. We kept saying "why is 2/5 having such a hard time up in Hue". Little did we know that there were 4 regiments of NVA and VC in the city. I went back to Hue last year and visited the old imperial capital. When I walked down Le Loi street, I was overcome with emotion thinking of the Marines that were wounded and killed in that city.
