Fire in the Lake - Insurgency in Vietnam
Vietnam, 1964. The most wrenching US engagement of the Cold War would be far more than GI versus Charlie. It set tribesman against nationalist, Buddhist against Catholic, mandarin against villager, and Northerner against Southerner - even among the communists. To get out, the US counterinsurgency would motor deeper and deeper in. In the end, culture and will would overcome technology and math to end the primacy of industrial might in modern warfare. Diving headlong into the momentous and complex battle for South Vietnam, Fire in the Lake takes players on US heliborne sweeps of the jungle, Communist infiltration of the South, Trail interdiction, and air defense of the North, as well as allied conferences, Saigon politics, graduated escalation, and media war.
