Many of our members are familiar with the battle at LZ Xray in November 1965 due to the film "We Were Soldiers". But many of you, especially the younger members are not familiar with the entire story of the week long battle as you're not read the book nor many of the first hand contemporary accounts. The battle at LZ Albany resulted in far more US casualties than Xray and was largely ignored and the details suppressed by the Army at the time.
In 1993 when the book was first being published, there was a first hand account aired of Hal Moore and several of the other members of both 1/7 and 2/7 returning to Vietnam for the first time since the battle 28 years before. The battle at LZ Xray is now quite familiar to many due to the movie, but the battle fought the next day by 2/7 at LZ Albany is unknown to all but those who seek it out.
This first hand documentary with interviews by Hal Moore, Joe Galloway, Bruce Crandall, Jack Smith, Larry Gwin, George Forrest, etc.
The first two parts are the story of 1/7 LZ Xray up to when they were relieved by 2/7. The second two parts are "The Walk In The Sun" resulting in the ambush and decimation of 2/7 at LZ Albany including the story of Jack Smith.
