More than 15 years since its original publication, the number-one New York Times best seller We Were Soldiers Once...and Young is still required reading in all branches of the military. Now, Harold G. Moore and Joseph L. Galloway revisit their relationships with 10 American veterans of the battle, as well as Lt. Gen. Nguyen Hu An, who commanded the North Vietnamese Army troops on the other side, and two of his old company commanders.

Moore and Galloway mix gritty and vivid detail with reverence and respect for their comrades. Their ability to capture man's sense of heroism and brotherhood, their love for their men and their former enemies, and their fascination with the history of this enigmatic country make for riveting listening. We Are Soldiers Still puts a human face on warfare in a way that will not soon be forgotten. Download and start listening now!

    " A must read. It views the aftermath of Vietnam from a warrior's perspective. Any voter should read this before selecting a federal officer holder. "

    " I was really impressed with the first book these two co-authored and was interested in seeing what they would add. It was sort of repetitive in places, but overall an interesting tale of finally meeting up with their North Vietnamese equals and hearing some of the planning that went into this conflict from their side. Two points that stick with me, perhaps because they were stressed and repeated, were the N. Vietnamese's conviction that if we had studied what happened to the French, we never would have gotten ourselves involved in this crisis, and also the long fighting history of the Vietnamese people in general and how they were willing to sacrifice anything for any length of time to be rid of foreign interference in their country. Lt. General Moore also has some strong opinions about the conflict we are currently in that were definitely worth hearing. In an interview at the Pritzker Military Library he and Galloway suggested that our current best option might be to get out and let the inevitable civil war burn itself out and just try to keep out outside invaders. After listening to their point of view, I can see the value in such a move. I'm sure others would disagree. "

    " Great sequel to a great battlefield history. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alisa | 1/28/2014

    " I read this because i loved the first book 'We Were Soldiers Once and Young'. I was not disappointed. They go back to the valley where so much happened and had to relive and deal with demons that plague so many. I recommended the first to my father whom was in Vietnam as well as this book. He enjoyed them both. I will admit>> I c ried during the first book, the second book, and the movie. Great Read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Timothy | 1/23/2014

    " This is a spectacular follow up to the original, we were soldiers once & young that the movie was made from. If you enjoyed the 1st book this will interest you as it goes back in the soldiers feelings & nightmares as they return to that fateful place from history to lay to rest those ghosts as well as make friends from prior enemies~ "

    " I didn't know much about Vietnam so his details of the battle were excellent. He got a little too motivational speaker towards the end though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 1/1/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book as it gave you some insight to the author and the other's in the first book and also gave you a look at the french battle's in Vietnam and to the Vietnamese way of thinking about the war "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark Luongo | 12/14/2013

    " Probably the best book I've read all year. A perfect sequel to WE WERE SOLDIERS ONCE...AND YOUNG. General Moore's thoughts on war should be read by every politician! If you like that kind a book that leaves a lump in your throat as you read, this is it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Audrie | 10/25/2013

    " Really nice to have a carree military officer say that war is never noble and is usually a failure. The authors let us know that the soldies themselves are the only noble feature of war and they tend to be noble regardless of the side of the battle that they are on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Skip Coale | 9/27/2013

    " Excellent book on re-visiting old battle ground and developing friendship with previous enemies fining much in common. The epilogue and observations on recent "adventures" by US Administrations and chapter on leadership is well worth the read. "
