Blackhorse Tales: Stories Of 11th Armored Cavalry Troopers At War
- American History, Vietnam & Korea
True tales from the front lines
When the U.S. Army went to war in South Vietnam in 1965, the general consensus was that counterinsurgency was an infantryman’s war. However, from the time the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment arrived in the region, the Blackhorse troopers demonstrated the fallacy of this assumption.
Over the course of the 11th Cavalry’s five-and-a-half years in South Vietnam and Cambodia, more than 25,000 young men served in the Blackhorse Regiment. Their stories—and those of their families--represent the Vietnam generation in graphic, sometimes humorous, often heart-wrenching detail. Collected by the author through hundreds of in-person, telephone, and electronic interviews, these powerful stories paint an extraordinary portrait of bravery and sacrifice.
