(Los Angeles), Documentary Productions, (1966). A Long-Playing (LP) record documenting, in sound, the experience of "the American Fighting Man" in Vietnam. The contents of the LP include a narrative and sounds of the soldier's experience in Vietnam in 1966, from arrival on jet transport and troopship, training sounds, sounds of artillery and jungle patrol, sniper rounds, mortar attack and artillery response, Vietnamese children, downtown Saigon, etc.; covers the ground war, air war and river war, and the propaganda war with radio excerpts from Armed Forces Radio, Radio Hanoi, and Radio Peking. An unusual, intense and ambitious production, and the only one of its kind we have encountered. It was apparently sold in Vietnam at the time of production; it's not clear if it was also distributed in the U.S. Includes sixteen pages of text and photos inside the fold-out front cover and a Vietnam conflict map folded into the sleeve. The record album and the map are fine; the sleeve is rubbed; near fine. [#029848] SOLD
