Navy completes Vietnam War book series
With the publication last week of End of the Saga: The Maritime Evacuation of South Vietnam and Cambodia, the Naval History and Heritage Command has announced the completion of its nine-year, nine-book series titled The U.S. Navy and the Vietnam War.
All books in the U.S. Navy and the Vietnam War series are available online for free download as 508-compliant PDF files, MOBI versions for Kindle devices, and the ePub for most other readers. Readers can download their free copy and enjoy them on the go. If you want a hard copy, you can purchase one from the Government Printing Office (GPO).
