  • Description

    In the area around Tani, south of Takeo 20 miles (32.2 kms) inside the Khmer Republic. South vietnamese Rangers have been both protecting Highway Three and helping Khmer farmers harvest their rice
    The North Vietnamese blew up sections of the road, and generally terrorized the farmers in the past, to get control of the rice crop while it was being harvested.

    The South Vietnamese rangers also hope this help with the harvest will improve their image with the Khmer, who have in the past suffered from South Vietnamese troops stripping ???heir villages and generally 'living off the land'. They have been able to help with the harvest despite withdrawing 10,000 troops from the area the in the last week.

    This film is serviced with an NBC narration which is transcribed over Jeaf. for further information about South Vietnamese operation in the Khmer republic, not also 671/72, also serviced today.
