The Conflict in Vietnam: ; The war in Vietnam against the Communist Viet Cong aggressors is a classic struggle involving interlocking military, political, and economic efforts. It's a nasty, tough little war, defending against forays, ambushes and murders designed to terrorize the population. It's a war demanding high courage, steady nerves and physical and mental stamina. However, with faith, goodwill and perseverance, success is a hopeful prospect. Here are some camera close-ups of that struggle, where United States Army troops are serving as advisers and trainers to the South Vietnam fighting forces.; Regular Vietnam Army forces, unloading from United States Army helicopters in a heavily infested guerrilla zone, push on to seek Communist Viet Cong concealed in brush and thicket.
