ETCHED IN THE BLOOD OF WAR
The Viet Cong and NVA ruled in the dense dark mountain ranges and jungles of the Central Highlands. The job of Hotel Company, the 1st Cav's LRRP teams, was to steal into the enemy's backyard, gather intelligence, stage ambushes, and, when necessary, engage in fierce firefights--and live to fight another day.
Written by a Hotel Company veteran, THE GHOSTS OF THE HIGHLANDS is based on accounts and recollections of LRRPs who helped form the 1st Air Cavalry Division's Long-Range Reconnaissance Patrol Detachment, small units of specially trained soldiers charged with carrying out the army's most dangerous and deadly reconnaissance missions. This stark history of sacrifice, determination, and courage gives powerful testimony to why the 1st Cav's LRRP company became the most decorated Ranger unit in American history.
