"Compelling, at times sad, at times energizing, always thought-provoking, there is no book like it regarding the essential nature of the U.S. military leadership." JOHN DEL VECCHIO Author of THE THIRTEENTH VALLEY LEADING THE WAY is a historic record of the rebuilding and reenergizing of America's armed forces, as told by 56 combat veterans who helped to bring it about. They bring to life the most critical moments they experienced in combat, from the Central Highlands of Vietnam to the air-strips of Panama and the deserts of Kuwait and Somalia. But just as riveting as their battle stories are their behind-the-scenes accounts of how confidence, discipline, and integrity were restored to the military after Vietnam by the work and example of its leaders. . . which led to the victory of Desert Storm.
