Here is an anecdotal history that brings to life the fear, intensity, and raw courage of close-quarter combat in chilling detail, including firsthand accounts of waging war among the ruins of Stalingrad, fighting in tunnels during the Vietnam War, springing an ambush, and even fighting with axes on the eastern front during World War II. The Whites of Their Eyes contains accounts from U.S., British, German, and French servicemen and covers both world wars, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Falklands campaign.
