10 August, 1958
[Michelin Plantation, South Vietnam]:
[SIDE A / H2H] [HIS] [CSL]:

As the Viet Cong were building their cadres and arming them, it became more and more common to attack isolated outposts and district capitals.

One such assault happened in the evening hours of August 10, 1958 where the newly forced C1000 Viet Cong company raided the Michelin Plantation and Ben Cat. The reinforced company assaulted the string of military posts and eventually the town of Ben Cat.

An ARVN infantry company and Civil Guard units that had been defending the area were caught unaware as even basic precautions were not established and the radio network to call reinforcements was shut down between 2200 and 0600.

The successful attack netted the attackers over one hundred weapons and 5 million piasters (~ $143, 000 USD)
