During the Spring and Summer of 1967, North Vietnamese commander General Giap targeted III Marine Amphibious Force and South Vietnamese Army units stationed in and around Khe Sanh, in Northwestern Quang Tri province, with 3 NVA divisions. His goal was to create a second Dien Bien Phu by overrunning the base and dealing the US a psychological blow. Khe Sanh was besieged for 77 days. Marines hunkered down & fought back despite daily artillery barrages. Marine Col. David E Lownds, Commanding Officer at Khe Sahn, discusses tactics.
