[Mao Khé, Vietnam]:

[H2H] [HIS] [CSL]:

Thirty-two kilometres north of the port of Haiphong lies the small village of Mao Khé. Nestled along the north side of the Da Bach River, the village acts as a focal point for the mining industry found in the region. It was also the logical place for General Giap to continue his offensive to break the Red River defensive line.

Sending Divisions 308, 312 and 316 towards Mao Khé, the Division 308 began its attack on the night of March 23rd. Over the course of the next few days, most of the outlying posts had been captured; Mao Khé was unable to be captured due to the concentrated artillery fire breaking up the attacks.

On March 27th, regiments of the 312 and 308 divisions launched a new attack, starting with the mine one kilometre to the north of Mao Khé. Defending the mine was a group of 95 Tho guerrillas under the command of Lt. N-X-T.

French artillery makes the VM job quite tough as terrain is quite open around the mine leading to frequent retreats and heavy casualties.

This scenario is not intended for head to head but we gave it a go. The French once they get all their units going have absolutely devastating firepower compared to the Viet Minh cadres.
