InBlack Hawk Down,the fight went on for a day.InWe Were Soldiers Once & Young,the fighting lasted three days. InThe Village,one Marine squad fought for 495 days -- half of them died.Few American battles have been so extended, savage and personal. A handful of Americans volunteered to live among six thousand Vietnamese, training farmers to defend their village. Such Combined Action Platoons (CAPs) are now a lost footnote about how the war could have been fought; only the villagers remain to bear witness. This is the story of fifteen resolute young Americans matched against two hundred Viet Cong; how a CAP lived, fought and died. And why the villagers remember them to this day.
