So last week we took a look at a few ideas I had for Skies of Crimson, this week we return to Cold War Skirmishes and delve deep into the jungles of Vietnam with the ANZACs. Odd Angry Shot is the name of this book, covering the Australians and New Zealanders in a conflict that was dominated by the Americans. This should hopefully form a good starting off point for the Cold War Skirmishes line.
The Odd Angry Shot
Thankfully theres a decent amount of material available that I can draw upon regarding the Australian and New Zealand forces in the Vietnam War. Both tended to use more or less the same pieces of equipment standard throughout the British Commonwealth in addition to gear acquired from the Americans. There was some differences between the two such as organisation, though most of these were minor and will probably be covered if they're considered important.
*Timeline of ANZAC involvement in the Vietnam War from the first training advisers through to final withdrawal of forces.
*Brief history of the ANZACs.
*Organisation and operational methods, pretty much patrol structure and how they conducted patrols.
*Gear & Equipment.
*List of ANZAC units that served in Vietnam.
*Further Interest, list of books and films that would be considered useful.
Again, open to ideas and suggestions.
