Osprey Elite 154 : Vietnam Airmobile Warfare Tactics

The author, an Army veteran of Vietnam, explains the composition, capabilities, equipment and missions of the US Army and Marine Corps helicopter and airmobile units in the Vietnam war and exactly how they carried out their missions. It centers on the classic airmobile assault mission, how it was planned and prepared, how the troop-carrying 'slicks' and their 'gunship' escorts and support teams actually operated, and the opposition and hazards that they faced on the LZ. The text is illustrated with wartime photos, organization charts, and colour plates showing both the machines and the tactics that where employed. Text by Gordon L Rottman with illustrations by Adam Hook.
