MY FATHER'S WAR IN VIETNAM
AND THE LONG SHADOW OF THE HON CONG MOUNTAIN

This is our first Non-American Mishima publication. For every man who pulled a trigger in Vietnam, there were nine men who supported him. This is the story of one of those men: SP4 Luis Rosas-Luca and those who served with him in the U.S. Army's 1st Air Cavalry Air Mobile Division / 15th Transportation Corps Battalion Delta Company at Camp Radcliff, An Khe in the Central Highlands of the Republic of Vietnam 1965-1966. Overlooking their base stood the Hon Cong Mountain whose shadow lives on as a metaphor for the war's long reach after their tour ended and how it affected these Vietnam Veterans and their families. This book contains over 400 never before seen photographs taken by Luis Rosas during his tour in Vietnam.
