Forty years after the first full scale engagement between U.S. troops and the People’s Army of Vietnam, the Vietnam Archive interviewed veterans from the

Battles of the Ia Drang Valley. 

It was after these battles - waged in November 1965 - that North Vietnamese forces began engaging in guerilla warfare. 

Up next - and airing for the first time on television - excerpts from one of those oral histories. We’ll hear from William Lund, who was the forward observer with Bravo company and was in charge of launching the long range artillery that helped secure landing zone x-ray.

This is about 50 minutes. close
