Published in February 1967 with the article "Behind the Headlines in Viet Nam," this map demonstrates the cartographic excellence that National Geographic is known for. Map collectors and those interested in the Viet Nam War era will enjoy this detailed, historical piece. A great companion to the map of the same region published in 1965.The 1967 Viet Nam, Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand map features:
Coverage Area: Viet Nam, Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand (Siam)

Map is for personal use, as a Viet Nam Veteran it brings back a lot of memories.
I purchased this map as a gift for my husband who is a Vietnam Veteran and retired Marine. He is also the County Director of Veterans Affairs. I had the map framed and it is hanging in his office. Quite a hit with veterans coming in for services!! The map is detailed and accurate. This is a 1967 map, so today the names of some of the towns and cities have changed (i.e. Saigon is now Ho Chi Minh City), but I knew that when looking at all available maps. I could not find a better map than this!
