The Jungles of Vietnam is an Eamon adventure written by Jeff Allen.

Premise

The adventure opens with the first verse of lyrics from "I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-to-Die Rag", a protest song about the Vietnam War written in 1965 by Country Joe McDonald and performed by the American psychedelic rock band Country Joe and the Fish:

Come on now all you big strong men,
Uncle Sam needs your help again!
Got himself in a terrible jam
way down yonder in Vietnam!
So put down your books and pick up a gun,
we're gonna have a whole lot of fun!

Play begins in the barracks of an American military base in the Vietnam during the war; the adventurer must explore the surrounding jungle, battle enemies, and find a way to escape.
