In this book Gordon L. Rottman - an Army veteran of Vietnam - explains the composition, capabilities and equipment 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 oppositions and hazards that they faced on the LZ. The text is illustrated with wartime photos, organization charts, and color plates showing both the machines and the tactics that were employed.
