Semper-Fi Summary

Semper-Fi: Vietnam - From Da Nang to the DMZ - Marine Corps Campaigns, 1965-1975 by Edward F. Murphy

Semper Fi-Vietnam presents the full story of U.S.M.C. ground operations in South Vietnam for the first time in one volume. From their early days in 1965 trying to drive the insurgent Viet Cong out of the villages around Da Nang to the valiant efforts of a handful of determined men trying to help the South Vietnamese Army halt the onslaught of North Vietnamese troops pouring across their borders in 1972, the whole gutsy, glorious saga of the Marines in Vietnam is told in stark, riveting detail. Semper Fi-Vietnam not only details the war as seen from the eyes of the "grunts" on the ground, but also examines the strategies used to fight the war. From the start, conflict arose between Marine commanders and the U.S. Army's senior officers over how to conduct the war. In the end, the army's view prevailed and the Marines fought a conventional war, suffering over 13,000 killed and almost 90,000 wounded: more than their total casualties in World War II. From the major well-known battles at Con Thien, Chu Lai, Hue, Khe Sanh, and Dong Ha to the brief but violent clashes on long forgotten jungle trails and mountainsides, the whole heroic tale of the valiant Marines' desperate struggle to win the war in South Vietnam is presented in a vivid narrative style. Semper Fi-Vietnam is a must for students and veterans of America's most divisive war.
