Vietcong Handbook

Fight against the South Vietnamese government


Receive the basic minimum of infantry training as a local guerrilla or the advanced instruction if you are recruited to a main force unit!

Dozens of centers are all over South Vietnam for squad and platoon leader, weapons and radio training including courses in political instruction!


  • Living amidst the civilian population: Americans can't discern friend from enemy. By hiding in the civilian population we can win the American's trust and attack them or listen to their conversations to see what their plans are
  • Underground tunnel system: allows us to withstand airstrikes and to launch surprise attacks and disappear quickly. If a village is in enemy hands, we are still able to conduct offensive operations. It also helps the communication between the bases.
  • Booby traps and mines: not only our mines and traps, but also the American mines and traps, are everywhere, which makes it harder for them. They often don't know where we are and have to be extra careful to not be killed by them.
  • More hit and run attacks: we will avoid pitched battles with the United States unless the odds are clearly in our favor. We won't lose as many people and get more powerful over time.


  • Booby traps
  • Mines
  • Rocket propelled grenades
  • Recoilles riffles
  • Mortars

China's communist leader once said,"Many people think it is impossible for guerrillas to exist for long in the enemy's rear. Such a belief reveals lack of comprehension of the relationship that should exist between the people and the troops. The former may be likened to water the latter to the fish who inhabit it. How may it be said that these two cannot exist together?" This quote relates to our situation in the way that we are going to be a part of the civilian population (see Strategy/Tactics, point one). This is going to be one of the main strategies, that lead us to the victory. Americans will think that we are normal civilians, while we can attack them or listen to their conversations. But it also relates to our tunnel system (see Strategy/Tactics, point two) because we are living under our enemy, so we are close to the enemy, but safe at the same time.


We will win the war by doing everything we can for our country, our independence, and our victory. We can't be afraid of dying because it would be an honorable death. With all our strategies, tactics, and weapons, we can defeat America in this war. They will slowly get weaker until we get to the point, where we are stronger and win. But the only way we can win is if you all support us and do your best.

This is a battle for our existence, and we are ready to pay any price for our victory!
