A Patch of Ground

Khe Sanh Remembered
by Michael Archer

This memoir is a poignant, often humorous, recollection of the siege of Khe Sanh – a pivotal turning point in the American war in Vietnam. Under constant bombardment from the enemy, Michael Archer and his cadre of young Marines managed to survive and, in the process, learn about manhood, sacrifice and the darkest recesses of fear and loneliness.
