 For the past few months, the platoon of men inhabiting Firebase Georgina have carried out patrols and surveyed the valley below them. For a while, the fact that Viet Cong fighters were beginning to use the old French house as a munitions cache went undetected. When American patrols ventured into the valley, the Viet Cong scattered to hide their supplies in a carefully-hidden tunnel under construction. Planning to connect a series of caches in the jungle surrounding the Firebase, the Vietnamese began to create a second cache at the far edge of the woods. However, noticing a commotion caused by the finishing of the tunnel there, the Americans called in napalm support from F4 Phantoms at nearby Camp Holloway outside of Pleiku and trained their own howitzers on the area, turning the southern half of the band of jungle into a smoldering deforested area. For the past few months, the platoon of men inhabiting Firebase Georgina have carried out patrols and surveyed the valley below them.

-The sudden barrage frightened the Viet Cong, causing them to abandon their ammo cache+The sudden barrage frightened the Viet Cong, causing them to abandon their ammo cache and tunnel system. In order to investigate the effects of their shelling, the US set off on a patrol, on which they found the ammo cache, now left unhidden by the Viet Cong. At the same time, the Viet Cong alerted a local PAVN unit, resting nearby and preparing, along with the Viet Cong, for the assault on Firebase Georgina. As the US make their way through the jungle, inspect the napalmed area, and begin to cross the rice fields to the south of the jungle, the PAVN regulars are preparing an ambush. Their cover blown, they have no choice but to begin the assault and destroy the Americans before reinforcements are alerted. As the Americans walk through the knee-height rice, a PAVN machine gun across the field opens fire.
