The Battle of Ap Bac

The Battle of Ap Bac was a small-scale battle early in the Vietnam War (1960–1975) which resulted in the first major combat victory by the National Front for the Liberation of South Vietnam (aka the Việt Cộng) guerrillas against regular South Vietnamese forces. The battle took place on January 2, 1963, near the hamlet of Ap Bac, 65 kilometers (40 mi) southwest of Saigon in the Mekong Delta. Forces of the 7th Division of the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN), equipped with armoured personnel carriers (APCs) and artillery and supported by American helicopters, faced off against an entrenched battalion of guerrillas.


NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT OF SOUTH VIETNAM (NLF) FLAG

The text on the flag reads:

"NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT OF SOUTH VIETNAM"
"SPRING GENERAL OFFENSIVE IN THE YEAR OF MONKEY 1968"
"VICTORY AT AP BAC - MY THO"
"ARMED FORCES OF CAI LAY"
"2-1-1963"
