The Vietnam War (1945-1975) was one of the most important conflicts of the 20th century, not only for the countries involved, but also internationally. It was a battle between two very different ideologies and two very different military strategies. Through over 240 official and private photos it commemorates the material, experiences and sacrifices of a generation of American armored vehicle crewmen. Sections describing some of the widely used, but lesser known armored vehicles of the conflict are included. A color profile section with over 170 illustrations of vehicles from some of the most important USMC and US Army armored and armored cavalry units is also included.
