Division) with “brown water” naval craft to interdict and engage
enemy forces in the waterways of the Delta. One of its more famous
operations was Game Warden in December of 1965.

Current:

General Westmoreland in 1964 became the second
commander of MACV (Event 69). He believed in a strategy of large
conventional battle. He advocated and sought to bring NVA regulars
into set-piece engagements in which overwhelming US superiority
in firepower and technology would break the back of the enemy
military. Westmoreland’s strategy during the critical ‘64-‘67 period
is sometimes cited as one of the reasons for US defeat in the war.

I'll execute my turn in the morning but for now: anyone got ideas on how to stop the VC? They're up by 4. There's only 3 cards left in the campaign, coup card could be any of those 3. If it's next, they'll go last after all 3 of us have gone. Neither event is helpful to us. I can't snipe any bases, but at best I can infiltrate in QTTT to reduce Opposition by 2. The ARVN can Pacify in Kien Phong to bring them down 4, so by itself that'll do. US doesn't have resources to Pacify but they can Assault QTTT to kill a base (if they airlift in 2 more troops). Assuming prop card is next, the VC will be unable to bring their victory points up by more than 1 on a limop (by building a base.) If they get a full Op they can get 2 by building bases. So if all 3 of us gang up on VC, they'll go down to 32, and then get back up to 34 (either by terror in QTTT or, assuming the next card isn't coup and they go first, passing and building 2 bases.) Either way we're still in the game.

So I'm planning to Rally a Guerrilla in QTTT, Infiltrate there, and improve the trail. Anyone got a better suggestion?
