Summary:The Vietcong guerrillas were supported by women in their advance up the jungle trails. The village girls soon learnt to handle a rifle as expertly as a needle - American bombing of the North, which started in February, didn't visibly hamper the movements of the Vietcong and reports came of many more North Vietnamese troops supporting them in the South. But the conflict this year has not been confined to the swamps and paddy fields. NOTE: Date is approximate. This clip may contain footage from multiple events; exact date or dates may be unknown.
