Summary
The author takes as his canvas the Vietnam War, as seen through a single mission that occurred on May 2, 1968. A twelve-man Special Forces team had been covertly inserted into a small clearing in the jungle of neutral Cambodia--where U.S. forces were forbidden to operate. The team did not know they had infiltrated a section of jungle that concealed a major enemy base
Summary
In May 1968, a 12-man US Special Forces team entered the jungles of Cambodia on a covert mission to uncover evidence that communists were using the area as a major conduit for supplying the North Vietnamese Army. Little did they know they had infiltrated a section of jungle that concealed numerous enemy bases. They soon found themselves surrounded by enemy, low on ammunition, and using the bodies of their dead comrades as cover. Roy Benavidez, a Green Beret, heard the distress call and climbed onboard the next helicopter bound for the combat zone. What followed was one of the most daring one-man rescue missions in military history, in which Benevidez rescued eight soldiers, while fending off heavy enemy fire and sustaining extensive injuries himself
