Ia Drang Valley After Action Report

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 Vietnam

and 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.
