9780061147777: We Are Soldiers Still: A Journey Back to the Battlefields of Vietnam

Lt. Gen. Harold Moore and Joseph Galloway return to Vietnam's Ia Drang Valley more than four decades after the battle they recalled in their #1 New York Times bestseller We Were Soldiers Once . . . and Young. Renewing their relationships with ten American veterans of the fabled conflict—and with former adversaries—the authors explore how the war changed them all, as well as their two countries.

We Are Soldiers Still is an emotional journey back to hallowed ground, putting a human face on warfare as the authors reflect on war's devastating cost.

About the Author:

Lt. Gen. Harold G. Moore (USA Ret.) graduated from West Point, commanded two infantry companies in the Korean War, and was a battalion and brigade commander in Vietnam. After thirty-two years of service, he retired from the Army in 1977.



Recently retired senior military correspondent for Knight Ridder Newspapers Joseph L. Galloway served as a special consultant to Gen. Colin Powell at the State Department in 2001 and 2002, and spent more than forty years as an editor and writer for UPI and U.S. News & World Report.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. It would be a monumental task for Moore and Galloway to top their classic 1992 memoir, We Were Soldiers Once... and Young. But they come close in this sterling sequel, which tells the backstory of two of the Vietnam War's bloodiest battles (in which Moore participated as a lieutenant colonel), their first book and a 1993 ABC-TV documentary that brought them back to the battlefield. Moore's strong first-person voice reviews the basics of the November 1965 battles, part of the 34-day Battle of the Ia Drang Valley. Among other things, Moore and Galloway (who covered the battle for UPI) offer portraits of two former enemy commanders, generals Nguyen Huu An and Chu Huy Man, whom the authors met—and bonded with—nearly three decades after the battle. This book proves again that Moore is an exceptionally thoughtful, compassionate and courageous leader (he was one of a handful of army officers who studied the history of the Vietnam wars before he arrived) and a strong voice for reconciliation and for honoring the men with whom he served. 16 pages of b&w photos.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 198 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Almost 15 years since its original publication the bestseller We Were Soldiers Once And Young (1992) is still required reading in all branches of the military. Every day the authors receive letters from readers wanting to know what s happened to the characters they came to admire such as Ed Too Tall to Fly Freeman and Bruce Old Snake Crandall. There are also questions about whether they are still in touch with their North Vietnam counterparts and where they are now. Many of these questions are finally answered in We are Soldiers Still , which recounts a unique journey back to the battlefields by the commanders and veterans of both sides - a journey which ended with the authors and some of the comrades stranded overnight, alone, on the isolated field code-named Landing Zone XRay where so many perished. They will tell what was learned and felt during a night when a meteor shower filled the sky and peace came upon them. The authors mix gritty and vivid detail with reverence and respect for their comrades. Their authority on the military, their ability to capture man s sense of heroism and brotherhood, and readers fascination with their story is sure to make this a must-buy book for all history buffs. While We Were Soldiers brought to life an important moment in US history, We are Soldiers Still will illuminate how that history has changed the authors, the men involved, and our country.
