One of the world's greatest commemorative institutions reveals its historic vehicle collection. This title showcases photography and an accurate history of Vietnam vehicles and artillery. It also includes the stories of those who drove and serviced the vehicles and brings the wars they fought in into a new dimension.
Almost 60,000 Australians fought in the Vietnam War. Mud and Dust is an authoritative overview of the immense logistical effort required to move huge supplies of vehicles and artillery equipment between Australia and South Vietnam.
The book features the stories of those who drove and serviced the vehicles, and who operated and maintained the artillery. The text is lavishly illustrated with more than 400 images, largely drawn from the collection of the Australian War Memorial. This book is the third in the successful collection series from the Memorial, following the recently released Moments in Time and A Unique Flight.
In association with the Australian War Memorial, this book showcases stunning photographs of the vehicles in action, with detailed colour scheme notes, internal features and stories from their war record. Compiled by and endorsed by the Australian War Memorial, Mud and Dust paints an informative and thoughtful portrait of the vehicles and artillery used throughout the Vietnam War.
