They Were Soldiers: Battle of the Ia Drang Valley is a 2-player turn-based operational level design based on the battle for LZ X-Ray during the larger Battle of the Ia Drang Valley in Vietnam, 1965. When I was 16 I read the famous We Were Soldiers Once…And Young by Lt. Gen. Harold Moore and Joseph Galloway and ever since have been very interested in not only this battle but the entire Vietnam War itself.

We posted an interview with the game’s developer Kevin Talley in the run up to the Kickstarter and you can read that at the following link:
