[Dau Tieng]: [ca. 1970]. 12mo. Commercial album; turquoise faux-leather boards. 46 gelatin-silver B&W prints, most 4.5" by 3.5"; 13 color prints; 3 pieces of various ephemera (including an Army library card dated 1970); plus 4 photos apparently sent from home. Very good. Mild exterior wear; light soil to plastic sleeves throughout; but photos remain clean and bright. (Item ID: 19694)

Striking collection of photographs showing many carefree, recreational moments of wartime: soldiers sitting around at the barracks, reading and smoking; many photos of smiling Vietnamese women (including girls at the base library). Notably, includes two photographs of a Vietnamese all-female rock band performing, and three of an African-American soldier rock band (likely USO). Plus several exterior shots of the military base, one sign noting the headquarters of the 2/28 Infantry (the Black Lions). A moving portait, particularly of what appear to be (at least momentarily) jovial relationships between soldiers and local Vietnamese.
