The book does give an accurate portrayal of how the LRRP teams operated. The title of the book is a little misleading, as some of the missions described did not take place in the A Shau. The pictures show the LRRPs with a wide variety of clothing and equipment that was typical of the individualists who were drawn to the LRRP work.

      Larry Chambers was still new to Vietnam in early when the LRRPs of the st Airborne Division became L Company, 75th (Rangers). But his unit's mission stayed the same: act as the eyes and ears of the st deep in the dreaded A Shau Valley—where the NVA ruled. A Shau Valor is a thoroughly documented study of nine years of American combat operations encompassing the crucial frontier valley and a mile radius around it--the most deadly killing ground of the entire Vietnam War.
