FW901 - Tour of Duty
The struggle which defined a generation, the Vietnam War was one of the longest and most bitter conflicts since the Second World War. Battles were fought on all scales - from small squadron level guerilla fighting amongst the jungle trails to large scale battles which saw tanks, aircraft and artillery combine with massed infantry assaults upon key positions.
While the Free World had the advantage of resources and technology, the Nationalists knew their land and exactly how to use it - employing the use of booby-traps, ambushes, and tunnel networks which would allow them to appear and disappear in the blink of an eye.
