The Marines were the first combat troops into Vietnam and the last to leave. They bore an even greater proportion of the fighting in Vietnam than in any previous American war. Trained as an attacking force, the Marines in-country found themselves cast in an unfamiliar defnsive role. Rapidly they adapted to this new type of counter-insurgency warfare - living up to their legendary fighting tradition in the hard-fought sieges of Khe Sanh and Con Thien and the bitter street battle for Hue.
