ATTN: All Pershing Rifle Members and Alumni! Ed Sherwood, a P/R alumni from Company T-4 at Georgia State College in Atlanta, Georgia (Now Georgia State University) has invested five years researching and writing a new book for those considering or currently serving as junior officers or NCOs in or with the combat arms. Courage Under Fire: The 101st Airborne’s Hidden Battle at Tam Ky being published in late March 2021 is receiving strong, positive reviews. The book tells the untold story of an almost forgotten, major ground battle of the Vietnam War. Sherwood’s focus is on the “Follow Me” leadership and “Never Quit” fighting spirit of young infantrymen who prevail in battle for 28 days against a tough enemy, despite increasing casualties, loss of leaders, and harsh battlefield conditions. Full of lessons learned in combat, the book is especially for those who will serve, are serving, or have served in or with infantry squads, platoons, companies, and battalions.
New Book Release
