Book Description Cowles Book Company,, New York, 1969. Hard Cover. First Edition. 242 pages, 8 plates, map, diagrams, cloth, dj, very good. 1st edition. From the dj, 'The battle, code-named Operation Attleboro, began with a simple purpose: to block a Vietcong attack on an American base camp that was expected to occur in time to affect elections in the United States. However, when the GI's were in the field and had uncovered huge stores of rice and equipment, a secondary aim emerged and became dominant: to find and destroy the enemy in his own base camps. Ambush also recounts other confrontations between American and enemy forces in late fall and early winter of 1966 in Vietnam - disclosing the mistakes made, the lessons learned, and, above all, the courage of U.S. troops under fire.
