Samenvatting On Mother's Day 1970, Leslie Sabo Jr.'s mother received a gift of orchids from her son, who only hours before had fallen in the jungles of Vietnam fighting for his country. Awarded the Medal of Honor in 2012 after years of campaigning by his family, Sabo's brave actions were forgotten for over three decades. He and his unit, Bravo Company, 3rd Battalion, 506th Infantry (Currahees), 101st Airborne Division, were involved in some of the most intense and bloody engagements of the Vietnam War, such as the battle for Hill 474 and the Mother's Day Ambush. Beginning with their deployment at the height of the blistering Tet Offensive, and using military records and interviews with surviving soldiers, Eric Poole recreates the terror of combat amidst the jungles and rice paddies of Vietnam. Company of Heroes, now published in paperback, tells the remarkable story of how Sabo earned his medal, as Bravo Company forged bonds of brotherhood in their daily battle for survival.
