Description

In this aerial view, different features of a Vietnamese township and the adjoining farm land are contrasted as a dirt road intersects through both. The edge of the town is visible at the top whereas a patchwork of cultivated fields is visible below. Off centre, two roads almost perpendicular cross at a local check point. Situated only six km from the South China Sea, it was a substantial presence for US and ANZAC units and a significant theatre of military operations for all those who contested the area .
