Amazing forgotten footnote battle of the Vietnam War. An infantry company sent out as bait runs into a death trap of North Vietnamese regulars. Facing annihilation, an offer of help from an armored command is a glimmer of hope. The rescue mission is successful but deadly. A story of courage, self-sacrifice and never giving up that truly demonstrates the brotherhood of combat.
