Description Edit | History

This simulation game re-creates one of the longest, most complex, and least understood conflict in US history in all of its military and political aspects.

The rules include detailed treatment of movement, terrain, search and destroy operations, special operations, firepower, air mobility, riverines, brigade-level formations, limited intelligence and auxiliary units in each scenario. The scenarios start out small with Operation Starlite, and slowly build in complexity, introducing more rules, until the entire Campaign Scenario which covers the entire war from 1965 to 1975 and introduces South Vietnamese politics, morale and commitment, strategic bombing, reinforcements, and pacification.

Unit counters are Battalion and Regiment size.

8 US Divisions Redux
This is a key to the symbols in Sheets 1 to 6. Not all of the symbols on this sheet are used in the current edition of the sheets (they are for my historical OB sheets).

5 Counter Images for OB files
This file contains a comparison of four possible versions of game counters, including some rationale behind the changes. What do Vietnam fans think about updating the look of the counters?

Just in case the one from your rules book is getting a little dog-eared. Ignore the note about US artillery configuration unless you're using my house rules.

2 Stickers for Counter Baggies (3 of 3)
Recently bought a 2nd-hand copy of this game and as part of sorting through the bits I came up with these stickers. Wrap them around some thin card, cut them out and pop them into the baggie with the relevant counters. Should add flavour to the game and help in set-up.
