While the battle of Somme started the era of tanks, the battle in the valley of Ia Drang tested the theory of airborne troops. Thanks to the professional knowledge of general Harold Moore and the literary talent of journalist Joseph Galloway, the participants of this battle, tactical considerations, influence of politics upon strategy, peculiarities of using arms and other aspects of military arts become understandable, forming a coherent picture not only of a certain battle but also of the Vietnam war in general. The book, which was adapted into the film of the same name, is addressed to servicemen, volunteers, researchers in military history, to all those who are interested in military arts and study the impact of war on our life.
