189 pages2 hours


A temporary truce has been agreed upon between South Vietnamese and Communist aggressor forces for Tet, the Vietnamese New Year. Similar initiatives have been tried in the past with little success.

With pathos and humor, Dragon Fire relates the exciting tale of a U.S. Navy security force tasked with safeguarding a cargo-offloading ramp near the only bridge leading into the city of Da Nang.
