Lieutenant Colonel Arthur M. Luckenbach, USA (ret.) is the author of Co Van My VA Thiet Giap: The American Advisor and Vietnamese Armor.  According to the book description, “Unexpectedly thrust into the Senior Advisor's job at the Vietnamese Armor School during the '68 Tet Offensive, an American Army officer finds himself engaged in realistic training and combat operations.  While initially enduring culture shock amid language difficulties and a variety of conditions, he acts aggressively to tackle his help, aid, and assist mission, in order to satisfy the requests from his counterparts and the demands of his usually far-too-distant American superiors.  After numerous months of adapting to culture shock, besieging conditions continue to follow him into the filed when he becomes Senior Advisor to a newly forming Vietnamese Armored Cavalry Regiment.  Successes and failures, tactical, administrative, and logistical, often run from high elation to sheer frustration.

 

The variety of personalities, coupled with hamstringing rules and procedures, both Vietnamese and American, often necessitate unconventional solutions to the problem solving process in order to accomplish the advisory mission.”
