Bait: The Battle of Kham Duc Special Forces Camp

January 11, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This is the dramatic, true story of a large yet little known battle at the height of the Vietnam War….it is required knowledge for an authentic, up-close view of how large battles were actually fought in South Vietnam in the critical year of 1968. This deeply researched presentation radically contradicts all the other accounts of the battle of Kham Duc. More than 1,500 people were evacuated under fire, but twelve aircraft were shot down, one of them carrying 183 civilians. One pilot received the Medal of Honor. Hear stories of the B-52s bombing and some 350 sorties by more than 100 tactical bombers on the third day of the battle. Book signing to follow the program. Presenter: Greg Sanders
