U.S. Vehicles & Heavy Weapons of the Vietnam War

238 pages. Acknowledgements, introduction.

This useful reference volume focuses on the vehicles and heavy weapons used by the U.S. Army during its involvement in the Vietnam War (1963-1975). The author is a military vehicle enthusiast and collector who has published dozens of books on U.S. military vehicles.

This book is intended as the first in a series.

The book is organized into Wheeled Vehicles (126 pages), Track-Laying Vehicles (76 pages), Self-Propelled Weapons (7 pages), and Towed Weapons (10 pages). Within each section, the vehicles or weapons are listed from small to large.

The sections include topics for each vehicle or weapon, sometimes with summary sections about subcategories (for example, there are two paragraphs introducing 'jeeps' before the three topics on quarter-ton trucks.

Each topic includes a brief description of the vehicle's development, description of variants, and data tables, followed by photos (in color and black-and-white) with detailed captions.

This book is an excellent general reference on the subject of vehicles and heavy weapons (mostly artillery) used by the U.S. Army in Vietnam (or, in at least one case, supplied to the South Vietnamese).

Recommended to any wargamers interested in the Vietnam War.
