  • Description

    As President Nixon ordered limited air and artillery strikes against North Vietnam on Thursday, South Vietnamese troops were mustering to stand and fight the Communist invasion at Dong Ha. Their defence perimeter, called the "Dong Ha Line," ran along a natural barrier - the south bank of the strategic Cua Viet River. An estimated 10,000 Marines and Rangers were being rushed from the south to reinforce it. But while the town itself was holding out, North Vietnamese troops were reported to have crossed the river to the east after a fierce tank battle.
