If you've seen the movie, We Were Soldiers, then you're familiar with the story of the U.S. Army's 1st Battalion/7th US Cavalry (Airmobile) and the Battle of the Ia Drang. Under the leadership of then-Lt. Colonel Hal Moore. Drastically outnumbered by the enemy, the men from "Garryowen" clawed their way to victory in the first major clash of the Vietnam War. Combining dialogue from the movie, personal interviews, and Biblical truth, The Battle will walk you through the techniques, tactics, and procedures of any successful campaign—including winning the battle as a father, husband, and man of God.
