The Pulitzer Prize-winning true story of one army unit in Vietnam is transformed here into a masterful narrative of compelling drama and sweep. Told from the viewpoints of the soldiers who tried to resist this descent into hell, and those who did not, and including accounts from Vietnamese who witnessed the Tiger Force's rampages, this is history at its most harrowing. It is also the astonishing story of how these events, buried by the Army for decades, came to light at last through the heroic persistence of a few individuals who could not forget.

"In the best tradition of investigative journalism, the authors let the story speak for itself, and thus force readers to wonder: was Tiger Force's behavior aberrant or was it part of a half-submerged pattern spanning the entire war?" - PW.
"It took years of tireless research on the part of an Army investigator to bring this appalling story to even the barest glimmer of light. Sallah and Weiss do a solid job of unearthing the rest of it." - Kirkus.
