  • Description

    South Vietnamese Government troops were fighting the Vietcong to retake Trung Nghia village in the Central Highlands last week.

    The Government say the Vietcong overran the South Vietnamese militia forces guarding the village on June 9th.

    General Cam of the 23rd Infantry Division's 45th Task Force was given the job of recapturing the village. He opened his attack with an artillery barrage before ordering his armour supported troops to move forward.

    The well-known North Vietnamese "Steel Division" is reported to have moved into the area to bolster the Vietcong defence lines.

    Casualties were reported heavy and the fighting continued for three days.
