For twenty six days during May and June 1968 the 1st Australian Task Force fought a series of actions around Fire Support Bases Coral and Balmoral, north east of Saigon.
An overnight switch in war tactics, from patrolling and ambushing to close quarter combat action, where, for the first time in a long while, tanks and artillery support came into the own.
