New book, 192 pages, 200+ photos. Although the helicopter was used in assualt operations in Korea, at Suez, and in Algeria, the concept of helicopter-borne airmobility was not fully realised until the US involvement in Southeast Asia. There, two US Army units were at the forefront of bold and imaginative heli-borne assault operations: 1st Air Cavalry (the 'First Team') and 101st Airborne (the 'Screaming Eagles'), whose combat action, weapons and equipment, and tactics are analysed in incredible detail in this highly illustrated book.
