Michael Green's Armoured Warfare in the Vietnam War: Rare Photographs from PDF

By Michael Green

Historian and collector Michael eco-friendly indicates during this attention-grabbing and graphically illustrated booklet that the 2 wars that engulfed Indochina and North and South Vietnam over 30 years have been way more armoured in nature than more often than not considered. via skilful use of images and descriptive textual content he describes the numerous variations deployed and their contribution.

The ill-fated French Expeditionary strength used to be mostly US built with WW2 M3 and M5 Stuart, M4 Sherman and M24 gentle tanks in addition to armoured vehicles and half-tracks. almost all these ultimately went to the military of the Republic of Vietnam yet have been superseded and useless as a result of loss of logistics and training.

The US military and Marine Corps build-up within the Sixties observed huge amounts of M48 Pattons, M113 APCs and lots of expert editions and improvised armoured autos arrive in theatre. The Australians introduced their British Centurion tanks. 

But it used to be the Russians, chinese language and North Vietnamese who gained the day and their T-38-85 tanks, ZSU anti-aircraft structures and BTR-40 and -50 swept the Communists to victory.

This high-quality ebook brings information and photographs of a lot of these various weaponry to the reader in a single volume.
