Vietnam War/Counteroffensive Phase IV Campaign (1968)/Operation Delaware
Start Year
1968
End Year
1968

Description
Apr 19 - May 17; 1st Marine Division, 1st Cavalry Division, 101st Airborne Division, 3rd Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division and 196th Infantry Brigade, operation in the A Shau Valley, Thừa Thiên Province.

Operation Delaware was a joint military operation launched during the Vietnam War. It began on Friday, April 19, 1968, with troops from the United States and the Republic of South Vietnam (ARVN) moving into the A Shau Valley.
The A Shau Valley was a vital corridor for moving vast amounts of supplies from Communist North Vietnam into South Vietnam through Laos and was used as a staging area for numerous attacks against the coastal cities of Hue and Da Nang. Other than small, special operations reconnaissance patrols, American and South Vietnamese forces had not been present in the region since the Battle of A Shau in 1966, when a U.S. Special Forces camp located there was overrun.
