Enemy Dead On The Battlefield

At this LZ the only protection we had was a dirt birm or concertina wire. The area had been cleared of jungle by bull dozers lifted in my helicopters. When the enemy attacked at night they came in waves blowing whistles. Over the sounds of gunfire someone said they could hear a bugle. We couldn't get air support considering where we were located so we had to depend on our own weapons and mortars. To say the least it was scary. More than one of us had wet trousers when it was over.
