Escape from Firebase Kate was written and produced by Paul Kakert for Davenport, Iowa based non-profit Storytellers International. The 1-hour documentary recounts the events of an intense 3-day siege during the Vietnam War in 1969. U.S. Army Special Forces Captain William Albracht, a 21-year-old from Illinois, is assigned command of Firebase Kate, making him the youngest commanding officer in Vietnam. Only two-dozen American troops and 100 indigenous Montegnard infantry occupy the small artillery outpost near the Vietnam-Cambodia border – just off the Ho Chi Minh trail. The base comes under heavy attack the day Albracht arrives. What is initially assumed as a small contingent of enemy soldiers eventually reveals itself as thousands of North Vietnamese troops making a major push across the border into South Vietnam on an offensive towards nearby Camp Bu Prang.
