quite possibly the most informative comic ever

Recommended Posts

That seems to be the product of an imperialist war of capitalist aggression where the workers of one country were sent to fight the workers of another country. The use of this comic book format indicates that the military hierarchy thought their conscripts too dumb to understand a proper field manual.

Not to mention that the M-16's first deployed for use in Vietnam were prone to a myriad of problems. The most glaring one that I can remember is that at first the rifles were not even issued with a cleaning kit.

I got a few of these when I was a kid from a friend of the family who was in Vietnam. Good find.

I think they handed them out to everyone. There was a whole series of these comics...IIRC the ones I had were about stuff like uniforms, helmets, tents, and light ordnance. I don't think they were done by Will Eisner, though.

If I was a soldier in Vietnam, I would prefer this entertaining comic to a dry manual, I mean it does explain things after all.

They still have those comics, I haven't seen one since I was a wee private in the Army.

They are filled with informative stuff, like how to order parts for vehicles and tips on how to maintain all types of military equipment.
