New book, 96 pages, 120+ photos and maps. On 1st July 1965 the 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile) was activiated and ordered to Vietnam. In less than a month the division - 16,000 men and 434 helicopters - was prepared to enter combat. Within 90 days of becoming the US Army's first airmobile division. The 'First Team' was in combat. On 10 October 1965, in Operation 'Shiny Bayonet', the First Team initiated its first brigade size airmobile action against the enemy. The division would go on to take part in many more air assaults and play a leading role in defence against the Tet Offensive, driving the NVA and Viet Cong invaders from Hue and, in Operation 'Pegasus', relieving the 3,500 US Marines and 2,100 ARVN soldiers besieged by nearly 20,000 enemy at Khe Sanh. First into Cambodia in May 1970, a year later the division's colours returned to Fort Hood. Contents: Origin and History; Organisation, order of battle and how this changed; Battle History, theatre by theatre; Insignia and Markings; Top People - biographies of commanders and personalities.
