Overrun: Jungle Warfare in Vietnam (No Safe Spaces)

Overrun: Jungle Warfare in Vietnam (No Safe Spaces)

by

The second in a series of true war stories by a Marine who arrived in Vietnam at the age of 18. During Operation Mameluke Thrust, not long after the TET offensive, the 7th Marine Regiment of the 1st Marine Division went in search of the North Vietnamese Army forces in the jungle covered mountains where the enemy lived and prepared for their attacks. The Marines were hunting, and the NVA were ready for them.

The Marines found themselves on surrounded by a far superior enemy force deep into enemy territory on the summit of Hill 1062. North Vietnamese “sappers”, high on opium and willing to die, attacked the Marines. A reinforced platoon of sappers broke through the Marine defensive perimeter firing AK47’s while throwing satchel charges and grenades. Perhaps, the most frightening word in the infantry vocabulary, is “overrun.”
