Abstract:

Lacking a doctrine for area security in Vietnam, American troops deployed in the populated areas in support of pacification have devised various methods of operation. The enclave deployments of battalions in the Ly Tin district of Quang Tin Province may be considered typical of those deployments in I Corps between 1966 and 1968. This Memorandum is a narrative account of some of the salient events that took place in Ly Tin district during that time.
