The Australian 1st Platoon has taken control of the Khe Sanh province's Hill 558 in a tough battle against the VC/NVA and Independent forces in the area.
The Aussies took the area after some tough fighting and a few casualties. They then moved into the VC base area, where also the fighting was very intense, the VC/NVA forces managed to retain their forward base.
Want wanting to concede any territory, the VC/NVA forces launched a counter offensive on Hill 558 and they captured and held the area for some time. The VC/NVA repelled several attempts by the Australians to regain the Hill, but the Aussies were eventually able to regain control of the Hill until the battle ended.
