9780804110235: Force Recon Command: 3rd Force Recon Company in Vietnam, 1969-70

THE A SHAU VALLEYWHERE THE NVA WAS KING . . .
In order to prevent surprise attacks on U.S. forces as they were pulling out of Vietnam, someone had to be able to pinpoint the NVA's movements. That dangerous job was the assignment of then-major Alex Lee and the Marines of the 3rd Force Reconnaissance Company when he assumed command in late 1969. They became the tip of the spear for Lt. Gen. Herman Nickerson's III MAF. And each time one of Lee's small, well-motivated, well-led, and wildly outnumbered teams was airlifted into the field, the men never knew if the day would end violently.
But whether tracking NVA movements, recovering downed air crews, or making bomb-damage assessments after B-52 strikes, Major Lee's Few Good Men never forgot who they were: Each of them was in Vietnam to live like a Marine, win like a Marine, and, if need be, die like a Marine.
Forthright and unabashed, Lieutenant Colonel Lee leaves no controversy untouched and no awe-inspiring tale untold in this gripping account of 3rd Force Recon's self-sacrifice and heroic achievement in the face of overwhelming odds.

About the Author:

Lt. Col. Alex Lee retired from the U.S. Marine Corps in 1978 after a 27-year career. As an infantryman he held commands ranging from rifle and machine-gun platoons and rifle-company-level assignments to a tour of duty as commanding officer of 3d Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment. He is the author of Force Recon Command: 3rd Force Recon Company in Vietnam, 1969-70, which chronicles his experiences in Vietnam.

Review:

Alex Lee commanded the Third Force Reconnaissance Company in Vietnam from 1969 to 19670. Made up of small units of specially trained U. S. Marines, that company conducted long-range patrols deep in Northern I Corps (including the infamous Ashau Valley) to gather intelligence about the North Vietnamese Army. An intelligent effective operator who led by example, Lee was also brash and excruciatingly honest, and in this controversial, no-hold-barred account, he takes the wraps off this select group of courageous and intrepid Marines. A master storyteller, the colonel leads the reader through harrowing, and often deadly missions in the enemy-dominated Ashau, where the Recon Marines were always vastly outnumbered and support was miles away. Days of silent observation could, and often did, erupt into savage, running firefights and hot extractions. With the sensibility of a novelist, Lee brings vividly to life the spirit and character of his Force Rcon Marines and the deadly jungle that was both friend and foe. More than a memoir of Vietnam war stories, this rank and absorbing chronicle traces the evolution of marine small unit reconnaissance from its origins in World War II, analyses its use and abuse in Vietnam, and offers a provocative but useful legacy of lessons learned from a career dedicated to an elite within the elite. Lee tells it like it was, sparing none of the acid that alienated many and ended his stellar military career. -- Midwest Book Review
