Inhaltsangabe: FIRST ON THE WALL - The Last Word on the First American Advisors to Die in Vietnam and the Opening Attack of America's Longest War by M/Sgt Ray Bows, U.S. Army (retired) is the true and complete story of the first two names inscribed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. - U.S. Army Major Dale R. Buis and M/Sgt Chester M. Ovnand. The book dispels long standing myths and examines all aspects of the attack which occurred on 8 July 1959. Bows interviewed survivors of the attack, LTC Victor W. Gorlinsky and Major Howard B. Boston, before their deaths and has also included biographies of all those who were inside the MAAG 7 building when it was attacked by small arms by the Viet Cong. The 9"x 6", 192 page, perfect bound book is profusely illustrated with never before published on-the-ground photos taken prior to and just after the attack. Other American deaths occurring prior to those of Major Buis and Master Sergeant Ovnand are also explored which makes an interesting epilogue to this well researched volume.
