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 armoured vehicle crewmen.
Sections describing some of the widely used, but lesser-known armoured vehicles of the conflict are included.
A colour profile section with over 170 illustrations of vehicles from some of the most important USMC and US Army armoured and cavalry units is also included.
