Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0804117144, Mass Market Paperback)TANKS IN THE WIRE!
The son of a career enlisted man, Bill Craig was a hard-bitten Korean War veteran and Special Forces brawler. In Vietnam, they called his kind of soldier a snake-eater.
Now here is Craig's unvarnished account of a military career that catapulted him to team sergeant, the pinnacle of achievement for a Special Forces operator. It also took him to the trough of anger and despair. For during Tet 1968, his camp at Lang Vei was overrun by NVA. A nearby force of Marines refused to come to the camp's aid--even though the NVA had parked a Soviet tank on Craig's command bunker and the enemy was dropping grenades down the air ducts.
The riveting description of the breakout that followed and the raw courage of men fighting to save their comrades is an inspiration for anyone venturing into harm's way.
