GUN TRUCKS OF VIETNAM reveals the incredible story of the U.S. Army gun truckers, innovative young men who were assigned trucks that were woefully under-equipped for protecting vital convoys. They scavenged parts and weapons to turn these unarmed trucks into five-ton killing machines during the Vietnam War. The truckers were tasked with leading and protecting convoys – groups of men, vehicles, equipment and supplies – that were the lifeblood of U.S. Army camps spread throughout Vietnam.
