[Saigon, South Vietnam]: [SIDE A / H2H] [HIS] [CSL]:

Prime Minister Ng Dinh Diem issued an ultimatum for the private army of the Binh Xuen organized crime syndicate to surrender their arms and come under state control in early 1955. The Binh Xuyen was a private army within the Vietnamese National Army, as decreed by Emperor Bao Dai and was funded with revenues from legally running brothels and casinos.

The group consisted of five battalions and armed with similar weapons as the VNA. In reaction to Diem's call, elements of the Binh Xuyen attacked the VNA Headquarters in Saigon, beginning a series of engagements throughout the city.

As the VNA funneled more forces into the city, house to house fighting became prevalent. The Binh Xuyen was pushed into the Cholon District, where they had their fortified headquarters established.

Eventually the VNA was forced to use heavier artillery, destroying much of the Cholon District, causing hundreds of deaths and displacing thousands.

Seeing their position as being untenable, the Binh Xuyen escaped south into the Rung Sat Swamp.

[NOTE: The Binh Xuyen Forces are portrayed with US armed Viet Cong platoons]
