Into Laos. The Story of Dewey Canyon II/Lam Son 719.

Novato: Presidio, 1986. First Printing of the First Edition. A Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket . This work, presents a comprehensive command history, clear action, and a vivid but humane narrative. The first all-South Vietnamese offensive into Laos in early 1971 produced both an interruption of Northern buildups and a test of Vietnamization of the war, but despite a 10-to-1 casualty ratio and tons of captured supplies was seen to be so savage and damaging to the South and to American support forces that much of the military and the press deemed it a defeat. Nolan's arguments that it had positive effects are well presented and convincing. Item #26085
