The Ia Drang valley hosted one of the most famous and bloodiest battles of the Vietnam war. It is most popularly known from the book We Were Soldiers Once…and Young: Ia Drang – the Battle That Changed the War in Vietnamand the film We Were Soldiers . Wargames Illustrated is posting some interesting material on the Vietnam War and one of the items caught my eye: The commander of the American unit Harold Moore’s after action report. This is the original document, complete with typewriter corrections and bad photocopying. It is a relatively quick read, but I found it fascinating. It is a must read for any history buff.
