Strategy & Tactics Quarterly #8: Tet Offensive Appearances can be deceiving. In 1968, the leadership of North Vietnam was convinced of victory in the decades-old war for control of the nations of Indochina. A massive country-wide offensive exploded during the lunar new year. Viet Cong guerrillas supported by regular units of the North Vietnamese army overran towns and cities across the south as the surprised soldiers of the U.S. and the Republic of Vietnam flailed helplessly. They recovered quickly, crushing the offensive behind devastating airpower. Although the offensive failed, we now look on it as the war's turning point in the communist favor. Magazine includes plentiful maps, diagrams, weapons descriptions, and images of people and events. A map poster is included depicting the whole of the Tet Offensive across South Vietnam and a detailed infographic of the amount of men, equipment and munitions that took part in it on the reverse. $16.00 USD
