The cultural climate of the Vietnam era didn’t only inspire fashions stateside; it found its way to troops overseas as well. In Vietnam War Helicopter Art, John Brennan showcases some of the wildest, most creative images that adorned choppers during the conflict.
Featuring hundreds of close-up color images, the helicopter nose art seen here is elaborate, colorful, and often comical. Inspired by '60s and '70s pop culture, music, cartoons and comics, psychedelia, and politics, as well as sex and booze, the images were found on AH-1 SuperCobras, UH-1 Hueys, a variety of Chinooks, and more.
A unique entry in the Stackpole Military Photo Series, Vietnam War Helicopter Art captures a fascinating slice of the Vietnam experience.

Excellant Book, Excellant Photos, almost all in color ! I have books on aircraft nose art but this is the first on Helicopters. I really didn't know they painted up Helicopters like they did fixed wing aircraft. If you like art on military equipment, then you'll like this book. And a bonus is a short history of each Helicopter.
