In association with the Australian War Memorial, Mud & Dust showcases photographs of the vehicles in action, with detailed colour scheme notes, internal features and stories from their war record. Mud & Dust includes the stories of those who drove and serviced the vehicles and brings the wars they fought in into a new dimension. Their narratives record the tragedies of war as well as the adventures experienced by soldiers.
Compiled by and endorsed by the Australian War Memorial, Mud & Dust paints an informative and thoughtful portrait of the vehicles and artillery used throughout the Vietnam War.
Almost 60,000 Australians fought in the Vietnam War. Mud and Dust is an authoritative overview of the immense logistical effort required to move huge supplies of vehicles and artillery equipment between Australia and South Vietnam. The book features the stories of those who drove and serviced the vehicles, and who operated and maintained the artillery. The text is lavishly illustrated with more than 400 images, largely drawn from the collection of the Australian War Memorial. This book is the third in the successful collection series from the Memorial, following the recently released Moments in time and A unique flight.
