This is a hard-hitting saga of the Tet Offensive -- North Vietnam's all-out attempt to win the war in 1968. It contains an enormous cast of characters including Major Dennis Shannon -- a leader any soldier would follow to hell and back -- and Mosby, who would be recommended for the Medal of Honor for his actions during Tet, North Vietnamese General Vo Le Duan who knows that he will never achieve the glory he desires, and the mysterious Miss Tram, a spy more deadly than any frontline soldier. Its compelling plot is enhanced by the authors' intimate knowledge of the land and people of Vietnam. The result is a gripping, fast-paced story that brings the horror as well as the nobility of war to life.
