"In the spring of 1967, some of the most vicious and bloody fighting of the Vietnam War occurred in the remote northwestern corner of the Republic of Vietnam, or South Vietnam. Khe Sanh lies in the mountainous northwest corner of Quang Tri Province. As an otherwise insignificant village that few people from the outside world had ever heard of, Khe Sanh's location astride Route 9 near the demilitarized zone separating North and South Vietnam and just 10 kilometers east of the Laotian border made it strategically significant to American military planners and their North Vietnamese foes. Later, in 1968, the legendary siege of Khe Sanh, partly coinciding with the larger Communist Tet Offensive, would make this small village a household name among Americans and a well-known heroic chapter in the history of the U.S. Marine Corps. This narrative does not tell the story of the 1968 siege, but rather describes the equally heroic, brutal, and bloody fighting that took place around Khe Sanh during the preceding year. In the spring of 1967, various units from 3d Marine Division fought a number of ferocious battles with elements of the North Vietnamese Army, some of the best-trained and most motivated troops of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. These fierce clashes, erupting suddenly in steep mountainous terrain at close range and resulting in heavy casualties on both sides, included some of the most desperate fighting of the Vietnam War. In Marine Corps lore, they were known as the 'Hill Fights' or the 'First Battle of Khe Sanh.'"--Page 1.

The Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps : 100 years of service to the nation, 1916-2016

November 8, 2017
Daugherty, Leo J., author.
[United States] : [GPO] ; [2017?]
110 pages : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 27 x 30 cm
Shipping list no.: 2018-0004-S.
One hundred years ago President Woodrow Wilson signed the National Defense Act of 1916 establishing the Reserve Officers' Training Corps. Throughout the ensuring century, the United States and its Army faced numerous challenges both at home and overseas. Wars were fought against despotic foreign regimes, periodic economic downturns were endured, and U.S.-led peacekeeping operations contributed to enhanced global stability. Making a critical difference during all these times of peril were men and women who received their start in Army ROTC. History has proven those who participate in the program develop leadership and managerial skills that last a lifetime. This volume traces the proud history of Army ROTC from its 19th Century origins through the contemporary period. With over 600,000 graduates to its credit, Army ROTC arguably can be said to have had a lasting impact on virtually all elements of American society. Among its graduates may be found three former secretaries of state and a sitting Supreme Court justice. Few other American institutions can boast of similar success. The challenges currently facing America's Army are far different than those it had to address when the ROTC program first came into existence. But as Army ROTC enters its second century, it is well-positioned to continue to provide the talented leaders our Army and nation needs.--Inside jacket flap.

Prieto examines the operation led by General John Pershing to search for, capture, and destroy Francisco "Pancho" Villa and his revolutionary army in northern Mexico in the year prior to the United States' entry into World War I. This campaign marked one of the final times cavalry was used on a large scale, and it was one of the first to use trucks and airplanes in the field. While Pershing's troops failed to capture Villa, both Regular Army troops and National Guardsmen stationed on the border gained valuable experience in these new technologies.
