Join the Friends of the Daniel Library for an evening with authors William Albracht and Marvin J. Wolf for a discussion on their new book Abandoned in Hell: The Fight for Vietnam’s Firebase Kate.
In October 1969, Albracht, the youngest Green Beret captain in Vietnam, took command of a remote hilltop outpost called Fire Base Kate. At the time, the outpost was held by only 27 American soldiers and 150 Montagnard militiamen. In a battle outnumbered three dozen to one, Albracht and his men found the courage to hold off repeated ground assaults by communist forces.
Albracht was awarded three Silver Stars for his actions in the Vietnam War. He has also received three Purple Hearts and five Bronze Stars. For 25 years, Albracht served as a United State Secret Service agent. During his time with the Secret Service, he guarded five American presidents and numerous foreign officials.
Following the discussion, Albracht and Wolf will be available for a book signing. For more information, please contact Ruby Murray at (843) 953-2568. Ruby N. Murray, M.Ed. | Programming and Outreach Manager Daniel Library | The Citadel
