The Blackhorse in Vietnam: The 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment in Vietnam and Cambodia, 1966–1972 with Donald Snedeker

When the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment arrived in South Vietnam, in September 1966, the unit faced a number of challenges: The enemy—Viet Cong (VC) and North Vietnamese Army (NVA); but also the terrain and weather.  The lack of doctrine and tactics for the employment of armored cavalry in a counterinsurgency was equally challenging—especially during the pre-deployment training and initial combat operations.

Our speaker, Donald Snedeker, will discuss how the unit responded to these challenges and became the most lethal brigade-sized unit in Vietnam.
