Description
Summary:A memoir/history of a much-beleaguered Marine outpost of the DMZ. Throughout much of 1967, a remote United States Marine firebase only two miles from the demilitarized zone (DMZ) captured the attention of the world's media.

As such, the fighting along this territory was particularly intense and bloody, and the body count rose daily.
