At the outset of the Vietnam War, the Army created an experimental fighting unit that became known as "Tiger Force." The Tigers were to be made up of the cream of the crop-the very best and bravest soldiers the American military could offer. They would be given a long leash, allowed to operate in the field with less supervision. Their mission was to seek out enemy compounds and hiding places so that bombing runs could be accurately targeted. They were to go where no troops had gone, to become one with the jungle, to leave themselves behind and get deep inside the enemy's mind.
The experiment went terribly wrong.
What happened during the seven months Tiger Force descended into the abyss is the stuff of nightmares. Their crimes were uncountable, their madness beyond imagination-so much so that for almost four decades, the story of Tiger Force was covered up under orders that stretched all the way to the White House. Records were scrubbed, documents were destroyed, men were told to say nothing.
But one person didn't follow orders. The product of years of investigative reporting, interviews around the world, and the discovery of an astonishing array of classified information, Tiger Force is a masterpiece of journalism. Winners of the Pulitzer Prize for their Tiger Force reporting, Michael Sallah and Mitch Weiss have uncovered the last great secret of the Vietnam War.

Mitch Weiss is an editor with the Charlotte Observer.From AudioFile:
This work is an adaptation of a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative series originally published in the TOLEDO [OH] BLADE. "Tiger Force" was the name given to a platoon in the 101st Airborne Division. Originally intended to hunt down the Vietcong and North Vietnam Army, the unit had little oversight and quickly went bad. The unit was probably responsible for the deaths of scores, if not hundreds, of civilians in South Vietnam during a six-month period in 1967. This blunt account is not for the faint of heart. Harry Chase, who is an experienced narrator for cable television, is in his element. He presents this story without overdrawn emotion but with much expression.
