Since it's initial conception as a small web site intended to present aspects of Vietnam wargaming, the site has grown well beyond any of my original expectations and now encompasses many areas of interest pertaining to the Vietnam War. At it's heart is a genuine interest in the events and circumstances of that particular conflict. This interest, that sprang originally from the perspective of a wargamer has widened over the passing of time to encompass a more general and detailed examination of the War from many different perspectives. Like most wargamers, I have developed a keen interest in the historical period in which I play my games. I believe that this site reflects that interest. I have attempted to include as much historical material about the war as possible and much of that material has been collated from numerous sources, including those who served, as well as from my own research. A growing list of sources is available (much of it as suggested reading!) should you wish to follow it up. is constantly evolving and is regularly updated. Should you wish to contribute to this site then please feel free to do so as I welcome any feedback and contributions that you may wish to give. It is my hope that you will find this site both interesting and informative and that you will be prepared to visit again on a regular basis.
Of singular importance to me is the fact that this site adopts no political or moral stance regarding what took place in Vietnam; I make no judgements, apportion no blame and offer no excuses. Hopefully, what I do present is the opportunity for you, the visitor, to gain some insights into the way things were or, at least, the way things were seen to be, and offer the sage advice that these two were rarely, if ever, the same thing.
