Vietnam War - The Battle of Ap Bac

Time: Wednesday Jan 2, 1963

Place: Ấp Bắc Hamlet, Định Tường Province (now Tiền Giang Province), South Vietnam

Details: The inept performance of the South Vietnamese army was exemplified by failed actions such as the Battle of Ap Bac on 2 January 1963, in which a small band of Viet Cong won a battle against a much larger and better-equipped South Vietnamese force, many of whose officers seemed reluctant even to engage in combat.
