This original graphic novel tells the harrowing story of a detachment of Special Forces soldiers on a simple recon mission into the village of DONG XOAI that turned suddenly deadly. It has the unique perspective of being in the very early days of the Vietnam War and Kubert is basing the story on extensive information gathered from the surviving members of the unit. It will cover not only the action of the event but the details of deployment and build-up that lead to the deadly encounter for these young American G.I.s.

display_description "Keep your heads down and your eyes open-- In Dong Xoai, Vietnam 1965, legendary author and artist Joe Kubert tells an incredible tale of bravery and camaraderie under fire-- a searing look at the true cost of freedom and the horrors of war. Based on actual events, this is the inside story of a team of Special Forces soldiers who were on what was to be a simple assistance and observation mission in the village of Dong Xoai that suddenly turned deadly. Pinned down and facing a never-ending tide of Viet Cong fighters, they have no choice but to stand shoulder-to-shoulder and fight for their lives. Written as an original graphic novel with text and illustrations, Dong Xoai, Vietnam 1965 is based on firsthand information from the surviving members of the soldiers involved and includes an afterword and extensive field notes compiled by the real members of Special Forces Detachment A-342, 5th Special Forces Group" -- dust jacket back.
