Viet Cong

Officially named the National Liberation Front of South Vietnam, the Viet Cong were a well armed and supplied guerrilla force that carried on a communist insurgency in South Vietnam operating from 1959 to 1975. Some Viet Cong troops were organized in formal military units and attached to the North Vietnamese Army. The Viet Cong were masters of concealment and usually employed ambush, hit-and-run, or infiltration tactics against American and South Vietnamese forces.
