The police action in Vietnam is drawing more heavily on the pool of manpower Stateside, pulling in kids fresh from the military's crash course on how to win a war: kill or be killed. Dreams of glory held by these idealistic young warriors are quickly shattered as they witness the reality of war: misery and death. With an instinct born of years of combat experience, U.S. Army Special Forces Captain Mark Gerber organizes a recon mission into the jungles of Bang Ron. Though enemy activity is way down, Gerber suspects a ruse: Charlie is sending carefully orchestrated signs that he is short on manpower. But Gerber is certain that the VC is planning a full assault in the valley. With help from air artillery, the steaming jungle camouflage is cleared, and Gerber goes in on foot to smoke out the enemy...while fighting a double battle with a new recruit whose blood lust could prove fatal to everyone...not just the enemy.
