Army Historical Series * American Military History, Matloff, Maurice (Editor)
2 Army Historical Series * American Military History
Matloff, Maurice (Editor): Office Of The Chief Of Military History, United States Army; Washington, D. C. 1973 
Reprint Hard Cover Very Good with No Dust Jacket as issued: 7 x 10 in.: 713 pages 

001486001486: No Jacket as Issued. "Except for Chapters 27 and 28, which have been considerably revised, this edition is essentially a reprint of the 1969 version. ... As of the time this manuscript goes to press, the final chapter on the Army's role in Vietnam remains unwritten. It is of course especially difficult to write the history of a war not yet over, but Chapter 28, covering the action through the end of 1967, does reflect the research and on-the-spot observation of several able historians whose personal and professional views of the war are by no means uniform.

Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. "Trained To Heal…And To Kill. All his life, Greg McPartlin wanted to be a Marine corpsman, a medic skilled at saving lives. Three months of bagging-and-tagging bodies during Vietnam's Tet Offensive took the luster off being a Marine - but not off McPartlin's desire to serve his country. After assisting in the sea recovery of Apollo 11 - the first ship to bring men to the moon - the twenty-year-old McPartlin was redeployed to Vietnam as an elite Navy SEAL. Barred as a medic by the Geneva Convention from the make-or-break training considered vital to service as a Navy SEAL, McPartlin had to show he had what it took. But McPartlin had been in country before. In a war where soldiers partied with their buddies in Saigon one day and crawled through an enemy-infested jungle hell the next, he proved that he was not only an outstanding medic but a real Navy SEAL - the toughest of the tough."

"In 1965 a platoon of large, loud, and highly visible Marine Corps tanks landed across a beach near Da Nang, drawing unwelcome attention to America’s first, almost covert, commitment of ground troops in South Vietnam. As the Marine Corps presence grew inexorably, the 1st and 3rd Tank Battalions, as well as elements of the reactivated 5th Tank Battalion, were committed to the conflict. For the United States Marine Corps the protracted and bloody struggle was marked by controversy, but for Marine tankers it was marked by bitter frustration as they saw their own high levels of command turn their backs on some of the hardest-won lessons of tank-infantry cooperation learned in the Pacific War and in Korea."
