Obstinate infantry captains in the Vietnam Mekong Delta. . . The upper Mekong Delta northwest of Saigon was strategically important to the innumerable Communist insurgents. This mostly swampy area was called The Plain of Reeds and was also the southernmost entrance of The Ho Chi Minh ... Trail into South Vietnam only about forty-five kilometers from Saigon. The local insurgents were experts of small unit warfare and would resort to any tactic to push the "American Devils" out of the way of North Vietnamese troops and supplies. These local Viet Cong units occasionally assisted large NVA units that attempted tactical forays into the 251h Division area of operation. The author presents these chapters with a perspective of realism that any veteran would surely agree with or at least appreciate. He believes that the "Wolfhound" units were militarily special during the Vietnam War and deserve recognition. The author has changed the names of the involved persons and altered the identities of organizations and places to protect privacy and to avoid misrepresenting histories and reputations. If any person should surmise any negative impression, it is hoped that he will understand that the author is striving for reader perception of character and storyline. These chapters are to honor the officers and soldiers of the 27th infantry Wolfhounds as a rumination of their operations in Vietnam. The author hopes that his lay readers will understand a little more about that terribly misunderstood chapter of America's continuing struggle to preserve the legacy of liberty earned by Americans and other freedom-loving people of the world.
