My copy of this book was published by Presidio Press in 1982, unlike the later Osprey edition, and is an overview of the armor employed by the French, US Army and Marines, Australians and North Vietnamese in Vietnam during those thirty years. It is not an in-depth study of the subject but instead is a nice overview of both the types of vehicles involved and the issues and problems faced by the combatants. The descriptions of the vehicles is accompanied by numerous photographs, some in color, most of which in this edition are of excellent quality. The author seems quite knowledgeable about many little and obscure details which makes it a rather enjoyable read. The author also discusses the challenges of operating armor in the wide variety of terrain found in Vietnam, with interesting insight into the evolution of armored doctrine as the forces gained experience.

I would recommend this book to those with an interest in the use of armor in Vietnam and is equally enjoyable by the scholar and the more casual reader. The detail of the photographs will also appeal to those involved with armor miniatures.

This is a must-read book for understanding the role of armored fighting vehicles in the Vietnam War. Heavily illustrated and well written, it's an excellent primer on the subject.

Finally a book that maange to circumvent some of the deeply entranched myths about armored forces and Vietnam. Detailing the use of armor from the first indochina war (it's nice to see the exact fate of each of the 10 M24 in Dien Bien Phu, the fact the the garrison destoyed the last ones when surrendering break many miths abbout their early distruction by the vietminh as is enlightening the amount of punishment they, light tanks, were able to sustain). The book then moves forward to detailng the creation of the RVN armored forces, the entry of the marine armor, the Army part and the importazn contribution of the ANZAC armored forces. Also the NVA armor is examined.

Beside the informative text the pictures are reasonbaly good. Some of the shots are widely known, but other really less and the color section is well done.

If you are interested in armored operations in vietnam this book is both a must and an introduction before tangling the magnus opus of General Starry, Mounted Combat in Vietnam.
