On Easter morning, 1972, Marine captain John Ripley braved intense enemy fire to blow up a bridge during the North Vietnamese Easter Offensive. Ripley became a legend within the Marine Corps for his daring act of heroism. His story is described here by fellow Marine John Grider Miller. Miller lays bare Ripley's innermost thoughts during the 3 hours it took to place and set the fuses while some 30,000 enemy troops and 200 tanks prepared to cross just yards away. Such a compelling act of raw courage and personal resolve is rarely encountered. Download and start listening now!

    " This is a great book for those interested in military history and strategy. The story of a Marine who almost single-handedly destroyed a bridge and ensured a safe retreat for thousands of people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Dan | 5/10/2011

    " Above average read of a way above average human feat. Then Captain Miller's exploits, and the back story in Vietnam at the time, serve as a cautionary tale of personal preparation, dedication and physical courage that few in history can match. "
