In this vivid and intensely frank memoir, retired Marine Colonel Dick Camp colorfully recounts the daily command decisions and combat intrinsic to his Vietnam War experience as "Lima-6"--the commander of Lima Company, 3rd Battalion, 26th Marines--from June 1967 through January 1968. As much as it is about the war, this book is also a candid account of the camaraderie of a Marine infantry company in battle--of men from widely disparate backgrounds thrown together to succeed or fail as a fighting force. It is also the compelling human drama of an infantry company at war as seen through the eyes of a lonely leader upon whom all others depend for guidance, wisdom, and strength.
