Armies of the Vietnam War 1962-1975 Volume 2. Packed with superbly detailed b/w photographs of the forces, and excellent illustrations provide key reference material for the contemporary uniforms and battledress.
Armies of the Vietnam War 1962-1975. 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. Lee Russell's follow-up to Men-at-Arms 104 focuses in finer detail on the uniforms and insignia of the US Army and Marines, the ARVN and the NVA. The book is packed with superbly detailed black and white photographs of the forces in the field, and Mike Chappell's excellent illustrations provide key reference material for the contemporary uniforms and battledress.
