Vietnam slide show

In June 1964 I visited the Special Forces "A" Team at Buon Beng in the Central Highlands. They were about to take their Strike Force of Montagnard tribesmen on a sweep of the mountains to the southeast, killing any Viet Cong they could find and evacuating the civilians (defined as those who didn't run) to a strategic hamlet.

Each "slide" will give way to the next in 15 seconds. If that doesn't work for you, or if you get impatient, there's a manual jump at the bottom of each page.
