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.
