Known as “the border battles,” the series of bloody engagements taking place primarily in Dak To were a strategic move by the North Vietnamese that was intended to draw U.S. and South Vietnamese forces away from major Vietnamese cities before the Tet Offensive, launched the following year. A graduate of West Point and a 30 year Army veteran who served two tours in Vietnam, Michael A. Eggleston merges official history with the recollections of veterans that reveals previously unpublished details of those fierce battles. Poignant and comprehensive, Dak To utilizes the writings of key figures and veterans memoirs to provide the reader with unparalleled insight into “the border battles.”
