The Sihanouk trail was the portion of the Ho Chi Minh
trail that operated inside of Cambodia and supplied operations in the
Mekong Delta region of South Vietnam. The Sihanouk trail received
supplies from the north via Laos and the coast. Prince Norodom
Sihanouk of Cambodia sought a balanced policy between East and
West blocs that led him to tolerate NVA presence on Cambodian
territory and North Vietnam’s use of Sihanoukville port and a “Sihanouk
Trail” from there into South Vietnam.

The pollen this season has been murder, let me tell you. As for how long it should last, there are 66 cards left in the deck, five of which are Coups. An event card can have at most two actions done on it, so if I get an action done a day we should be done in four or five months. Around six or seven months total for a long game sounds about right. All the other COIN games and scenarios, save perhaps the Extended scenario in ADP, should take less time then that, assuming the update schedule keeps up.

Expect an update here shortly.

Current:

On August 2, 1964 the USS Maddox was engaged
by elements of North Vietnam’s 135th Torpedo squadron. Two
days later a second incident was reported, but based on declassified
reports there was likely no actual engagement. These two reported
encounters between North Vietnam and the USN were the basis for
the Gulf of Tonkin resolution that gave the Johnson administration
legal justification for military operations in Vietnam.
