"History Personified"

Sep 9, 2017

On this week's episode, we interview author/biographer Mike Guardia about the life and career of Lt. Gen. Hal Moore. Gen. Moore is best known as the lieutenant colonel in command of the 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment, at the Battle of Ia Drang in 1965, during the Vietnam War. He would later be awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, which is the U.S. military's second highest decoration for valor. In addition, Gen. Moore would be portrayed by Mel Gibson in the celebrated war film, "We Were Soldiers." 

Gen. Moore passed away in February of 2017 at age 94, but, before that, he collaborated on the recently released book co-written with Guardia, entitled Hal Moore on Leadership: Winning When Outgunned and Outmanned. On this episode, which completes a two-part series on the Vietnam War's Battle of Ia Drang, Guardia discusses Gen. Moore's life and times.
