The bloody monthlong battle for the Citadel in Hue pitted U.S. Marines against an entrenched North Vietnamese Army force. By official accounts it was a tactical and moral victory for the Marines and the United States. But here survivor Nicholas Warr describes with urgency and outrage the Marines' savage house-to-house fighting--ordered without air, naval, or artillery support by officers with no experience in that type of combat. Sparing few in the telling, Warr's firsthand narrative tells of desperate Marine suicide charges and of the Marines' selfless devotion to their comrades. His riveting account of the most vicious urban combat since World War II offers an unparalleled view of how a small-unit commander copes with the conflicting demands and responsibilities thrust upon him by the enemy, his men, and the chain of command.

In post–World War II America, boys dreamed of adventure, listened to Elvis Presley, and read Jack Kerouac—but as they grew up, it wasn’t cruising Route 66 in a Corvette that united them, but Highway 1, known as the “Street Without Joy,” just outside Hue city in Vietnam. The US was immersed in the Age of Aquarius, the civil rights movement, the pill, and young girls in long boots and short skirts—but life was completely different for those in the jungle and rice paddies of Southeast Asia during the 1968 Tet Offensive. Full of innocence and dreams, adolescent passion and coming of age horror, River of Perfumes captures the contradictions of the times. It examines what the brutality of war does to young men in battle, and what happens to a country that abandons them.

From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli, and more recently from the jungles of Vietnam to the killing fields of Iraq, America's "soldiers of the sea" have fought their country's battles with famed valor, skill, and perseverance in the face of long odds. But where did the U.S. Marines earn their reputation as being the "first to fight?" It was on the South Pacific Island of Guadalcanal. There, on August 7, 1942, the 1st Marine Division stormed ashore to begin one of the most difficult and brutal campaigns of military history, and an unbroken string of victories staged across the Pacific.
