  • Description

    South Vietnamese forces sent to the relief of the besieged provincial capital of An Loc were pinned down Wednesday (April 12) fifteen miles short of their objective.

    They had moved forty miles up Highway Thirteen to the district town of Chon Thanh when they were encircled by Communist troops who survived withering fire from Government tanks and armoured personnel carriers. Ground controllers called in air strikes, but the Government forces were unable to break through.
