The Forest Is Their Shelter


A group of Viet Cong women is shown crossing the mangroves on a makeshift bridge after supposedly attending a training camp. Each of them is wearing a hood or mask to keep their identities from being identified by those who might be possibly captured and interrogated. A lesson probably learned from experience during the French occupation. The forests and mountains served as a haven for the Viet Cong but have become some of the most dangerous places to be in during the war as large parts, around 7,700 square miles, were destroyed by defoliants, in addition to bombs, that were dropped by American aircraft.
