  • Description

    South Vietnamese troops pushed north from hue on Monday (10 April) in an effort to strengthen the outlying areas of the ancient cultural capital.

    Artillery and tanks joined the move forward in what observers saw as a move to prepare against a possible assault on the city itself. it is thought that Hue, along with Quang Tri, is one of the key objectives of the present offensive.

    The South Vietnamese command claimed in Saigon on Tuesday (11 April) that infantry, artillery and airstrikes have killed more than 400 North Vietnamese troops in ten battles along the approaches to the two cities in the last few days. The areas up to 20 miles below the De???ilitarised Zone are still largely in communist hands, although Quang Tri and Hue -- the two main cities north of Saigon -- are reported to be safe.
