Description

Bien Hoa province, Vietnam, 1968-05-28. Photograph likely taken at Bau Hang, following the battle at Fire Support Base Balmoral. The dead bodies of about nine North Vietnamese Army (NVA) soldiers of the People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN) lie sprawled in and beside a bomb crater; the craters at FSB Balmoral were created by bombs, previously dropped by a United States Air Force (USAF) B52 bomber.
