Book Hour: Last Stand at Khe Sanh – The U.S. Marines’ Finest Hour in Vietnam

0

Vietnam is rarely discussed but this story of courage must be heard. Author Gregg Jones tells us about the political and strategic conditions leading up to the siege at Khe Sanh as 6,000 Americans defended a remote air base from 30,000 attackers. His book reveals the stories of the men who put their lives on the line for a cause that overwhelmed President Johnson and Secretary McNamara. Many soldiers died but those who survived returned to tell remarkable stories of heroism under extreme conditions. This is a good opportunity to listen and learn a seldom told story about Vietnam.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
