Product Description
On 30 January 1968 the North Vietnamese communists launched a coordinated surprise attack – the Tet Offensive – across South Vietnam against the South Vietnamese and American armies. Superior firepower eventually crushed the offensive, but it proved to be a major psychological victory for the communists – a turning point in the Vietnam War. Anthony Tucker-Jones, in this photographic history of Tet – and of American involvement in the struggle against the forces of the Viet Cong and the regular North Vietnamese army – uses over 180 contemporary images, colour and black and white, to show all sides of the conflict and to reassess a defining moment in the protracted and bitter campaign against communism in South-East Asia. The images record in vivid detail the conditions and the nature of the fighting, in particular the battles for Hue, Khe Sanh and Saigon, and the equipment and the weaponry that was used. They show the impact of the fighting on the civilian population in the countryside and cities as they became battlegrounds. And they illustrate why the US public was so shocked by the capability of the communists to launch such an all-encompassing assault that many lost faith in America's commitment to the South.
