Abstract:

NVA 325C Division, with at least two subordinate regiments, moved into the Tri-border area west of BEN HET. It began conducting operations in early May, the most significant being the 10 May attack on C and D38 Inf at FSB No. 25. Intelligence gained from PWs, ralliers and documents during the first three weeks in May identified the 325C Division and its subordinate regiments, 101D and 95C, with a total strength of at least 6000. In addition, it was learned that the 325C Division probably possessed armaments not previously employed by the NVA in the 4th Division AO i.e., tanks, 100 and 105mm artillery. It was also determined that the enemys immediate objective was BDN HET. This situation existed at the time TASK FORCE MATHEWS began operations on May 24th.
