Armies of the Vietnam War 1962–75, Vol. #1. A overview of the conflict following the division of Vietnam into two along the 17th Parallel in 1954, and the uniforms and insignia of all participating armies.

Click to EnlargeArmies of the Vietnam War 1962–75, Volume 1. On 8 March 1965 some 3,500 US Marines, the first US combat troops to arrive in Vietnam, landed in Da Nang to defend the US air base there. On 8 June, following further reinforcements, General Westmoreland authorised his troops to begin 'offensive patrolling'. On the 8th, too, some 800 Australians, followed shortly by a New Zealand artillery battery, arrived to join in the war. On 38 June the first 'search and destroy' sweep was made by a combined US, ANZ and ARVN force. The US 1st Infantry Division landed in July, and troops of the US 101st Airborne Division shortly thereafter. The 1st Cavalry Division [Airmobile] arrived in An Khe in September 1965. America was totally committed to the war. Philip Katcher provides a background overview to the conflict that engulfed Vietnam following the division of the country into two along the 17th Parallel in 1954, and the uniforms and insignia of the US forces, including the army, Special Forces, air force, navy and marine corps, are dealt with in detail, together with those of the ARVN, the Allied Forces (such as the Royal Thai Army and Korean troops), and also the Communist NLF (Viet Cong) and NVA forces. Mike Chappell's colorful artwork provides plenty of detail to accompany the authoritative text.
