This is a very good book and for me a quick read. It goes hand in hand with "We were Soldiers and Young" as a great conclusion to it. It chronicles Moore, Galloway and a few other soldiers from the fight in the Ia Drang Valley in 1965, and a couple that were involved in the fight at LZ Albany, as they go back to Vietnam thirty years later. There, they hook up with the former commanders of the North Vietnam Army whom they fought against in that epic battle and discuss the events that transpired there. Moore also gives insight into what he thinks makes a great leader as well as his feelings on today's war in Iraq in which he pulls no punches. Highly recommended reading!
