Abstract:

The most significant development within the reporting period was the reorganization of Viet Cong local forces in southern Military Region 1. In Quang Nam Province, several district units were reorganized as battalion size units. In Quang Tin Province, a few North Vietnamese Army NVA units were disbanded and the personnel sent to the local forces as replacements. The enemy withheld his main units 2d NVA Division, 141st NVA Infantry Regiment from battle, relying on the local forces instead. In Northern Military Region 1, the enemy continued his consolidation of bases in the western areas and maintained his attempts to expand to the east. There was no significant increase in strength levels, which remained high.
