A systematic analysis of the organization and operations of the military police committed to combat in the Vietnam War. The book contains extensive Tables of Organization and Equipment, Orders of Battle, maps, and detailed tables of unit locations, strengths, and operational commitments. There are also a handful of personal accounts which provide an individual military policeman's "foxhole" perspective," as well as actual articles from the Round-Up, an official newspaper of the military police serving in Vietnam. These articles provide insight into how the military police viewed itself in its efforts towards winning the "war with no strategy."

In the early 1970's, the U.S. Army published a set of monographs on the Vietnam War entitled "Vietnam Study Series." This series covered most of the major aspects of the conflict from airmobile operations to financial management, but did not include the activities of the military police. This book completes the series by presenting a systematic analysis of military police operations during the Vietnam War. Structured similarly to the Vietnam Study Series format, the book demonstrates how, in the guerrilla war with No Frontlines, military policemen were often thrust into situations where they had to be combat soldiers first and policemen second --- truly a combat police!From the Author:
As a military policeman serving in Vietnam (1968-69), I have attempted to memorialize those efforts of the military police in such a way that it has a wide appeal. Not only should Vietnam veteran MPs find this to be a fitting tribute to their efforts, but military historians and military scientists should find ample research material as they explore the full scope of the Vietnam Conflict. There is also my hope that the civilian law enforcement professional may find significant background information here, should there come a time of local, national, or natural emergency where co-ordination with the military police becomes necessary.
