Assault Into the Plei Trap Valley is another action-packed autobiographical look at a very special mission. In the late summer of 1968, several intelligence sources stated that numerous American POW's were being held in bamboo cages for transport by vehicle up the Ho Chi Minh Trail from the North Vietnamese Army stronghold the Plei Trap Valley. Special Forces CPT Joe Dietrich and 1LT Don Bendell volunteered to lead a helicopter assault into the Plei Trap Valley with 100 Montagnard mercenaries as the point element of a joint task task force of soldiers of the 4th Infantry Division. This book tells the harrowing tale about the adventures and misadventures of the two on this dangerous mission.
