Dak Son Massacre

Dak Son, a hamlet 75 miles northeast of Saigon, was home to approximately 2,000 Montagnard tribespeople, many of whom had fled to the village from Viet Cong controlled territory. On the night of 5th December 1967 VC troops attacked the village with flamethrowers, incinerating more than 250 of its unarmed inhabitants.
