With a tale that resonates today, bestselling Black Hawk Down author Mark Bowden presents not only the story of a battle, but of a pivotal moment in American history. Huế 1968 is one of the most heavily researched and reported accounts of combat in the Vietnam War, and one of the first to tell the story of an engagement in that war from both sides.
“The Battle of Huế,” says Bowden, “becomes a lens to the entire Vietnam War: the betrayed idealism, the lies, the strategic successes and blunders, the cruelty and waste, along with the undeniable heroism and sacrifice on both sides.”
Copies of Huế 1968 will be available for purchase and signing at this event.
