Probably one of the most amazing photos from this post is the image shown above, which depicts a face-to-face encounter between the well-camouflaged South Vietnamese Army and the Viet Cong soldiers in the middle of rice fields in the Mekong Delta region.
The dense vegetation of the Mekong Delta helped the anti-communist group move incognito.
The City of Thanh Tri
The Viet Cong Guerillas had less war gear than their South Vietnamese counterparts, but despite their outdated weaponry, the group compensated their lack of technologically relevant equipment with cunning tactics and unexpected strategies. They gave the U.S Military a hard time.
In this photo, soldiers train and practice their gun shooting skills in the city of Thanh Tri. A few days after they took this photo, the Viet Cong Guerillas attacked this very city and killed 25 soldiers along the way. They also killed innocent civilians and took every weapon in sight, while burning important establishments to hinder progress.
