“The Battle of Khe Sanh”

APRIL 6th and 7th 2013


The Battle of Khe Sanh was conducted in northwestern Quang Tri Province, Republic of Vietnam between January 21st and April 8th 1968. The combatants were elements of the US III Marine Amphebious Force (IIIMAF), South Vietnamese ARMY (ARVN) and two to three division-size elements of the People’s Army of Vietnam (PAVN). The American command of South Vietnam gave the defense of the base nickname Operation Scotland.
The American command in Saigon initially believed that combat operations around Khe Sanh during the summer of 1967 were just part of a series of minor North Vietnamese offensives in the border regions. That appraisal was altered when it was discovered that PAVN was moving forces into the area during the fall and winter. A build up of Marine forces took place and actions around Khe Sanh commenced when the Marine base was isolated. During a series of desperate actions the last 77 days, Khe Sahn Combat Base (KSCB) and the hilltop outpost around it were under constant North Vietmese ground, artillary, mortor, and rocket attacts.
In March of 1968 an overland relief expedition (operation Pegasus) was launched by a combined Marine/Army/South Vietnamese task force that eventually broke through to the Marines at Khe Sanh. The battle was a tactical victory for the Marines, although it had no clear strategic implications.
