Land With No Sun: A Year in Vietnam With the 173rd Airborne (Stackpole Military History Series)

A no-holds-barred, straight-in-your-face account of combat in Vietnam.

You know it's going to be hot when your brigade is referred to as a Fireball unit. From May 1967 through May 1968, Ted Arthurs was in the thick of it, humping an eighty-pound rucksack through triple canopy jungle, chasing down the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese in the Central Highlands of South Vietnam. As sergeant major for a battalion of 800 men, it was his job to see them through this jungle hell and get them back home again.
