Description

This book focuses on the battles of Quang Tri City and Hue that took place during the 1968 Tet offensive. The offensive itself, an all out effort by Viet Cong and North Vietnamese forces to overrun the major cities of South Vietnam, marked the turning point of the Vietnam War. Although the attacks were costly failures in military terms, they set the United States on a path of disengagement from the war that ultimately led to the fall of Saigon some seven years later.Thoroughly sourced from official documents and illustrated with numerous maps, this is a new look at these historic and defining battles.show more
