Summary: A Distant Challenge is the sequel to Infantry in Vietnam. Like its predecessor, it establishes that the conflict in Southeast Asia was a "platoon leader's war." It also tells the story of American involvement through first person narratives by the men who led and the men who fought. Arranged chronologically by year, A Distant Challenge covers all aspects of the U.S. Army's participation in the war: parachute jumps into War Zone C, digging the VC out of their underground bunkers, cordon and search operations, the battles of Dak To and Hue, firebase defense, operations in Cambodia and over Laos . . . as well as material about Special Forces, Airmobile and mechanized infantry tactics. A special section deals with the psychology of the Viet Cong and their North Vietnamese allies. 1983 reprint of 1973 ed.
