Tet Offensive


On the first day of the Tet (lunar New Year) truce, the Viet Cong launched their largest offensive of the war. One thousand Viet Cong troops infiltrate the Saigon. The Communist troops capture the Citadel at Hue and seize part of the US embassy in Saigon.

It takes 13 days to completely rout out the Viet Cong troops. The attack is a military disaster for the Communists: they lose over 10,000 men and meet none of their objectives. The offensive marks a military victory for The Viet Cong as Americans who had believed that the war was being won,are shocked at the sight of Viet Cong troops holding the US embassy. Its impact in the U.S. was to increase opposition to the war as it was incorrectly viewed as a Communist Victory.
