Summary
"The Vietnam War dragged on for a decade, playing out on television screens across America in a litany of death, destruction and confusion. But perhaps no other battle galvanized attention on the war as much as Khe Sanh, a 77- day siege for control of a base with minimal strategic value. UNSUNG HEROES examines one of the most perplexing battles from the conflict that many Americans--including those fighting it--had difficulty understanding. It was a political chess game with soldiers used as pawns. The fighting was so intense and prolonged that skeletons of the enemy dead were suspended in barbed wire lines surrounding the base. But no matter how bravely the defenders fought, the sheer numbers of the NVA attackers ensured that they would ultimately have to abandon Khe Sanh. Through archival footage and recollections from the soldiers who were there, UNSUNG HEROES tells the story of the siege that, for many, came to symbolize the entire war in Vietnam" - aetv website
