The siege at Hue ultimately determined the outcome of the Vietnam War. Now, here is the most complete account yet of that fateful
battle. . . .
On 31 January, 1968, the North Vietnamese and Vietcong launched the Tet Offensive, attacking thirty-six major South Vietnamese cities and towns. While American soldiers throughout the country dealt with the ferocity of the surprise attack, the most bitter battle of the entire war was unfolding at Hue. From the first round of incoming mortars to the triumphant hoisting of the American flag over the enemy's bastion, U.S. Army captain George W. Smith was there.
