'The longest bloody mile'

(Continued from Page 3)
would be dragged out only after
dark.
The stubborness of the North
Vietnamese and their unwilling-
ness to yield Route 13 was dra-
matically visible. When Vietna-
mese Skyraiders bombed a half-
mile north of "the Anthill,"
black puffs of rapid antiaircraft
fire punctuated their flight pat-
terns.
Artillery crews in the fire
bases along Route 13, who tried
to carve a path for tanks,.keep
their ears alert for the whoosh
of rockets that sporadically but
accurately fall among them.
The mortars and rockets that
hit the tanks and rangers as
they deployed for yesterday's
assault came within seconds of
their arrival at "the Anthill."
This was ample evidence of con-
tinuing coordination between
the North Vietnamese forward
observers and the rocketeers in
the rear.
Because of the heavy blows
received in the first five min-
utes, the attack never gained
the momentum, the American
advisers had hoped for. Tanks
raced for cover, and the Vietna-
mese rangers who rode up with
the armored vehicles clambered
into foxholes occupied by troops

who had fought from there al-
ready for a month.
By nightfall the tanks were
still maneuvering to gain some
advances under heavy fire. The
soldiers settled down for anoth-
er night of viscious grenade
fighting that has characterized
every hour since April.
With one more of a handful

of American advisers dead, kill-
ed by a rocket round, a sole
American captain was on duty
at "the Anthill." He would
spend the night awake beside
his radio, ready to call in the
power of the U.S. Air Force in
case the North Vietnamese de-
cided to renew their own offen-
sive.
