Most military books on combat and battles are written from a historical perspective. They deal with the Who, the Where, the When, and the What. Reflections on LZ Albany is different. Very different. It deals with the Why. It come from the “heart,” not the “head.” Even though each story is based on fact, these writings delve into the soul and gut of combat, written by someone who was there and experienced what Joe Galloway calls “the single bloodiest day in the Vietnam war” in his great Vietnam book, We Were Soldiers Once … And Young, co-authored with Lieutenant General Hal Moore. These stories will take you there, and you will feel the horrors and the hurt of combat. LTG Moore always concludes his talks with these words: “Hate war, but love the American Warrior.” Read this. You will.
