Landing Vehicle Tracked Personnel 5

A brand new book about the Vietnam era LVTP5 (Landing Vehicle Tracked Personnel 5) hits the ground:

The first and only illustrated book about the LVTP5 (Landing Vehicle Tracked Personnel 5) and its variants. Over 60 photographs never published before about the construction and building of the LVTP5, by the St. Louis Car Company Records. Rare B&W photographs from the LVTP5 in combat during the Vietnam War. Also some breathtaking, revised color photographs. All from private collections, provided by Vietnam amtrackers. Brief written history about the LVTP5 and its variants and detailed captions for every photograph. Over 40 funny, crazy, horrible and grim testimonials by amtrackers and a foreword by retired USMC Captain David Sconyers.

This book is a must have for every amtrac veteran and military history collector.

Sounds like a good read for all Marines. However I also highly recommend a book by one of our tracrats, Cpl J.R. Kelly. It’s called “Casting Alpha, Amtracs in Vietnam”. Good account of the everyday life of an Amtrac crew and good pictures, YAT-YAS Jim Donegan 3rd Amtracs March 67 – April 68
