Weapons and Field Gear of the North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong by¬†Edward J. Emering is a book about field gear and inert weapons and ordnance, that have long been popular items with militaria collectors. The Vietnam War by its very nature offers an incredible range and variety of these items for the interested collector. The North Vietnamese and their puppet troops of the National Liberation Front (Viet Cong or VC) relied primarily on communist allies (Russia, China, North Korea, Cuba and various Eastern Bloc countries of the era) for their weapons and field gear. For this reason, Vietnam represents a microcosm of gear from all of this century’s wars, dating back to World War I,

It is a tome of knowledge for people who want to paint NVA and Viet Cong soldier miniatures like the ones offered by Empress miniatures or Gringo 40. It has a wealth of information and color pictures of equipment and uniforms as you can see here:

Very recommended for the miniature painter, sculptor and collector. You can get a copy here.
