This is a Marine's view of the struggle for Khe Sanh, South Vietnam. Despite the ignoble defeat of the French 14 years earlier at Dien Bien Phu, what we find is that although this was a long and bloody struggle, the North Vietnamese Army was resoundingly defeated. This production accompanies a well-written and splendidly illustrated book. Stephen Lang narrates these eyewitness accounts with his habitual excellence. His delivery is crystal clear, and his voice authoritative and strong. The accounts themselves are something of a mixed bag. Not surprisingly, their production quality varies. However, all can be understood, and the unevenness adds something to the emotional impact. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 06]
