The war that would not end: U.S. Marines in Vietnam, 1971-1973
In the spring of 1972, Hanoi launched a full-scale invasion of South Vietnam, one of the largest offensives of the Vietnam War. For three tense months it was close confrontation, and many observers predicted the end for the Saigon government. But the South Vietnamese held. Their victory came in large measure due to American air power and the presence of U.S. Army and Marine Corps advisors on the ground. Yet their heroic story is not well known. The War That Would Not End paints a vivid picture of the battle for northern I Corps, concentrating on the Marines and their fight to stem the North Vietnamese tide.
