Critical Praise for
Expendable Warriors
 
"Warrior, professor, deep thinker, and highly engaging and articulate writer, Bruce Clarke has written with compassion and wisdom borne of his personal experience... A real page turner."
 -- John K. Swenson, College Dean and Vietnam historian


"Presented here in graphic detail is an autobiographical account of the preliminary battle of Khe Sanh, the opener for the Tet Offensive of 1968, by the genuine American hero who commanded the American and South Vietnamese side."
 -- Military Magazine


"Bruce Clarke aptly describes the valor and spirit of the defenders as they beat back repeated assaults with little support from the main base. This is a first person account of a virtually unheard of battle characterized by heroism and dedication to duty."
 -- Gordon Rottman, author,
Khe Sanh 1967-68
