Early Riverine Warfare

Much of Vietnam is laced by rivers, canals, and swamps. Controlling those waterways was vital to the success of allied arms. Based on the U.S. Navy's long experience with riverine warfare and that of the French during their fight with Ho Chi Minh's forces, Vietnamese and American fighting units developed tactics, vessels, and weapons especially suited to that environment.
