Finalist 2013 Army Historical Society Distinguished Writing Award.

A 1945 graduate of West Point, Moore's first combats occurred during the Korean War, where he fought in the battles of Old Baldy, T-Bone, and Pork Chop Hill. At the beginning of the Vietnam War, Moore commanded the 1st Battalion of the 7th Cavalry in the first full-fledged battle between U.S. and North Vietnamese regulars. Drastically outnumbered and nearly overrun, Moore led from the front, and though losing 79 soldiers, accounted for 1,200 of the enemy before the Communists withdrew. This Battle of Ia Drang pioneered the use of "air mobile infantry"--delivering troops into battle via helicopter--which became the staple of U.S. operations for the remainder of the war. He later wrote of his experiences in the best-selling book, We Were Soldiers Once...and Young.

"This book brings the saga of one of the Army's premier combat commanders to a new generation of military leaders. We are in Hal Moore's debt for his distinguished service under the most challenging conditions. We are in Guardia's debt for making Moore's story accessible to the American public." -ARMY Magazine
