The First Battle of Vietnam

This is a highlight of the first Army battle in the Ia Drang Valley of Vietnam in 1965. This battle was brought to light in a book authored by Col. Hal Moore, battalion commander, and made into a movie “We Were Soldiers Once and Young”. One of the officers who participated in this battle gives his summary of what happened.  Note the odds, 2400 of the enemy engaging with about 400 of our soldiers.
