Abstract:
The Communists are continuing to apply heavy pressure against a number of major population centers and their surrounding environs throughout the four corps areas of South Vietnam. The allied military position appears to be most critical in Hue, Kontum, Ban Me Thuot, Da Lat, and Ben Tre. There are indications that the Communists are planning renewed attacks in the Saigon area, although the situation at present remains relatively stable.
