INTRODUCTION
I have detailed below the Order of Battle for NVA and VC units in the four Tactical Zones for the year 1967. This is by no means a definitive listing, no OOB ever can be so use it with that in mind. I am always looking for new information so if you have any, or it contradicts what is here, then please contact me so that I can build a table of footnotes  you will be credited with the contribution.Similarly, if you know of OOB's for other years then please let me know as it would be really interesting to build up a picture spanning the entire conflict.
