An excellent book for the Knife collector, Vietnam era militay buff,or anyone with an interest in U.S.involvement in Vietnam. Excellent photography of a sampling of knives used by our forces with a short paragraph of maker and history. Also included are various patches, plaques, hats/berets and awards. The premise of this book is a pcture is worth a thousand words...and it is. I found the book excellent reading!!!! It is primariy pictures of an excellent quality. Recommended for the fighting knife, or military buff.
