Default Historical Theatre of Operation: Locations

Historical Theatre of Operation: Locations, Friendly Bases, Hostile Bases, major operations, major battles

Here we should try to collect information regarding the primary theatre of operations during the Vietnam war. we should try to connect major battles/operations as well different map/landscapes for additional diversity in the map designing (Jungle, city, mountain etc...)

Trying to simplify things the best, there were 3 major theater of operations during Vietnam:

-The Demilitarized Zone and the northern provinces of Quang Tri (Khe Sanh, Rockpile, Con Thien) and Thua Thien (A Shau, Song Bo, Street without Joy, Hué)

-The Highlands (Pleiku and Kontum provinces mainly with such battlefields as the Ia Drang, Se Sanh, Nam Sathay and Plei Trap valleys and the Dak To area)

-The Saigon region (Iron Triangle, War Zones C and D, Rung Sat, Route 13...)

That's where most of the fighting occured. Three other areas saw prolonged confrontation too but were of slightly lesser importance:

-Southern I CTZ between Da Nang and Quang Ngai

-The Central Coast between Qui Nonh and Cam Ranh Bay

-The Mekong Delta (IV Corps)

Stephane,

Please, could you (or anyone else) create a list that will include/connect the major battles/operations with the theatre of operations/geographical locations?

thanks,

Sure, what about a chronological list of major operations by Corps? would that be ok?

Yes, this should be sufficient for the moment.
Try to include the major battles and operations!
I guess that in each theatre of operations we may include a couple of historical battles.

thanks,
