Vietnam #1

Oh, What a Charge They Made (Vietnam #2)

Charge of the Light Brigade

Everyone knew that someone had blundered. When Tennyson's Six Hundred rode into their Valley of Death, they were, mercifully, cut to pieces in a matter of minutes. It took a decade for the ones who went to Vietnam to lose their Fifty-eight Thousand. Some of those who made the charge are still bleeding.
