A Reckoning for Kings

(1987)
A Novel of the Tet Offensive
(The second book in the Shannon Trilogy series)
A novel by

 
 
Down a thousand miles of jungle trail the enemy came. The Tet Offensive was about to explode: THEIR SIDE: The attack, their long awaited General Offensive, will begin during the traditionally peaceful celebration of the Vietnamese New Year - the Year Of The Monkey. Their leader is General Vo Le Duan, a soldier who knows his patriotic duty, but knows also he will never see, in this messy, endless war, the glory that he dreams of. OUR SIDE: Blooded and ready, all they need now is an enemy. Not one that murders from the ditch, or from the darkness of the night, but an enemy in the open. One of the men who must lead the ranks is Major Dennis Shannon, who discovers vital information that could nail the enemy - but no one on his side is listening. WITHIN THE SPAN of four short months, during the lightning quick, bloody campaign known as the Tet Offensive, two vastly different cultures and two bitterly opposing armies - the generals, the guerrillas, the grunts - will clash in an epoch shattering encounter that will alter the course of the war and change the shape of the world forever. "A Classic war novel." - San Diego Tribune "An excellent piece of work." - Los Angeles Times "Sets high standards for other Vietnam War novels." - St. Louis Post Dispatch "It has an enormous cast of characters and a compelling plot enhanced by an intimate knowledge of the land and people of Vietnam." - Chattanooga Times "An authentic action story." - San Diego Tribune "Rings with authenticity." - Austin American Statesman
