Through the Valley: Vietnam, 1967-1968
The fierce close combat in the remote areas of South Vietnam's northern provinces in 1967-1968 - the battles of Hiep Duc, March 11, Nhi Ha, and Hill 406 - has been a strangely under-reported slice of the Vietnam War. Through the Valley brings those battles into sharp focus, chronicling the efforts of the proud units of the Americal Division and the 196th Light Infantry Brigade against a stubborn enemy in long-forgotten villages and on torturous hills. Colonel Humphries draws on both his own combat experience and the eyewitness reports of fifty former veterans. Weaving his account into a narrative frame based on a multitude of official U.S. Army and Marine Corps documents, he creates a powerful reconstruction of combat in Vietnam.
