The true story of the seven-month rampage of an elite army unit in Vietnam, an experiment gone terribly wrong, is told from the viewpoints of the soldiers who tried to resist the descent into hell, and those who did not, and includes accounts from Vietnamese who witnessed the Tiger Force's rampages. It is also the story of how these atrocities, covered up by the Army for decades, came to light at last through the heroic persistence of a few individuals who could not forget. Journalists Sallah and Weiss won the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting for their series in the Toledo Blade on the last great secret of the Vietnam War.--Adapted from publisher description

A good account of the real victims in the Vietnam war. Shame on the US government for letting the perpetrators get away.

Amazing story about how things could go very wrong in Vietnam, and then be covered up by Washington, great to see a Pulitzer awarded for their 2004 investigation of this horrible event
