Fire support bases Vietnam: Australian and allied fire support base locations and main support units

Bruce Picken

A documentation of the construction, location and role of fire support bases during the Vietnam War, compiled by Vietnam veteran Bruce Picken.

Often makeshift bases hacked out of primary jungle, these artillery gun areas provided essential support to infantry field units during operations in South Vietnam. Picken identifies every fire support base by date, location and role and provides an outline of the operations in which they participated.

An essential reference book for those with a serious interest in the Vietnam War, and adds valuable detail to the study of a campaign that occupies a unique place in the Australian psyche.
