The “Lost” Valley Of Vietnam

Lost Valley Vietnam

There were many losers in the Vietnam War, but nature perseveres as the perennial winner; the eternal splendor of Vietnam’s La Drang is perhaps most evocative of that. 1965 marked the first major battle between US Army regulars and the People’s Army of Vietnam in this presently pristine North Vietnam plot of land. Despite the technical superiority of US forces, Vietnamese opposition proved a formidable opposition and this battle largely set the tone for subsequent war-waging strategies on both sides.
