Viet Cong Attack is Crushed in Four-Hour Battle in An Hoa

Apr. 7, 1962 - South Vietnamese Government forces (pictured), alerted by spies in the Viet Cong movement, crushed an attack by 1,200 Communist guerrillas in An Hoa in a 4-hour battle, South Vietnamese officials said today. “A few more wins like this and the back of the Viet Cong in the area will be broken,” one American military advisor said. The Viet Cong left behind 45 dead in the action. Government losses were listed as 16 dead and 33 wounded. Many of the Viet Cong bodies indicated links with North Vietnam. One such link was a photograph of the North Vietnamese leader, Ho Chi Minh.
