Gordon L Rottman entered the US Army in 1967, volunteered for Special Forces and completed training as a weapons specialist. He was assigned to the 7th Special Forces Group until reassigned to the 5th Special Forces Group in Vietnam in 1969–70. Nice color illustrations, and detailed analysis on the construction, and survivability of the different fortifications. One person found this helpful.

Field fortifications and tunnel systems are typically thought of as defensive and active protective measures, but the VC/NVA also employed them offensively. This book examines these unique fortifications. It was common for extensive field works to be constructed to support assaults and sieges on US fire-support bases and remote camps. Their tactics reflected attempts to counter the massive firepower they faced: when directly engaging the enemy they employed hugging tactics (moving in and remaining closely engaged, even intermingling units, to prevent the enemy from bringing his artillery and close air support to bear).

Gordon L Rottman entered the US Army in 1967, volunteered for Special Forces and completed training as a weapons specialist. Gordon worked as a civilian contract Special Operations Forces Intelligence Specialist at the Army's Joint Readiness Center, Ft Polk, until 2002. With diagrams, schematics and photos, you can get the idea of what they accomplished with so little.

Their field works defended villages, hidden base camps, and fortified complexes, and took the form of trench systems, individual fighting positions, crew-served weapon positions, bunkers, caches, and extensive tunnel complexes. Camouflage and deceptive measures, and the employment of obstacles and booby traps, went hand-in-hand with such works.

Field fortifications and tunnel systems are typically thought of as defensive in nature and as active protective measures, but the VC/NVA also employed them offensively. The vegetation, climate and geography of Vietnam had major effects on the tactics and techniques of the belligerent parties, which in turn influenced the character of fortifications, leading the VC/NVA to use different designs and materials in different areas.

Raelin
A comprehensive review (as much as can be squeezed into an Osprey publication) about NVA and VC tunnels, bunkers and fortifications. With diagrams, schematics and photos, you can get the idea of what they accomplished with so little. Good reading to uncover the other side of the hill. SAA.
Hatе&love
Yet another great book by Osprey, this goes into great "depth",literally, as it describes the genius designs of the VC/NVA Tunnel and Fighting complexes in 'Nam. Early in the war American Conventional Units were stunned at how the enemy "melted into the jungle", escaping the massive firepower of the west. Tunnels were not unheard of but no one realized the tactical importance of them to the enemy. This book offers the reader very detailed illustrations as to the construction and layout. Complex underground hospitals, command centers, and "dien bein phu kitchens" kept the enemy with the advantage of fight or flight. Add this with "The Tunnels of Cu Chi" and one will get a better sense why the NVA were able to turn the tides of the war in Vietnam.

Nicely done. Great resource.
