The ground war in Vietnam pitted a myriad of American tanks, artillery, APC and trucks against not only the weapons of Communist North Vietnam, but also the terrain. Through archival images, the arsenal of the US Army and USMC are revisited. From the iconic M113 APC to the M48A3 tank, M551 Armored Reconnaissance/Airborne Assault Vehicle, M151 and M54 trucks, M50 Ontos, M107 and M109 artillery, and M42 Duster, the complete array of vehicles fielded is shown.

This book, the first in a series on the US military's weapons, vehicles, aircraft, and naval vessels of the Vietnam War, offers a highly illustrated reference for this wishing to delve deeper into this conflict.

"This informative and interesting book is a great reference for anything that moved on wheels or tracks during the Vietnam War, including amphibious vehicles. For what might have been a dry subject, David Doyle, an accomplished military vehicle expert, has much to tell the reader about the Vietnam War—from the driver’s seat."

The VVA Veteran, May 2022

Model makers with a penchant for Vietnam will especially like this as will military vehicle enthusiasts in general.

"...modelers and dioramists will enjoy the photos and perhaps gain inspiration."

Historical Miniatures Gaming Society, February 2022

This offering from Pen and Sword can almost be considered as part of a series, as there are a number of titles presented in similar ways. For me, this book is for the modeller who has a general interest in vehicles used in Vietnam by the US, rather than specific vehicles. You are provided with a reasonable intro to each vehicle, and the mix of photographs and settings may unexpectedly get you interested in producing a model of a vehicle otherwise not considered. In my opinion this is a very good general reference book of the vehicles used in this period.

This is the first of a number of planned titles covering US equipment in Vietnam, and has instantly gained a place in my list of favourite references on the topic of equipment in the Vietnam War. It adds to a list of over 100 books written by David Doyle on armour topics, and mentions that he himself owns 10 Vietnam era vehicles. Definitely one I'd recommend.
