The first major battle of the Vietnam war and a test of the concept of airborne assault using the new UH-1 Huey. The battle of la Drang was also the inspiration for the move 'We were soldiers', Lt Col. Hal Moore and his men.

I agree that the music

was great but one must remember that the musicians of that era were LIBERALS of the first order.
