It was a coordinated surprise attack across an entire country - an explosion of horrific firefights from the DMC to the Mekong Delta - and it would become a decisive moment in the Vietnam War. In 1968, during the Vietnamese celebration of the Lunar New Year, Tet, North Vietnamese forces took advantage of the implied holiday ceasefire, and launched a cunning, highly effective offensive in South Vietnam. While it was a tactical defeat for the Viet Cong - thanks in large part to acts of American heroism, such as those stirringly depicted here - the Tet Offensive was the turning tide that eventually led to American withdrawal. From remote jungle crossroads to downtown Saigon, the Tet Offensive tells the gripping story of this gruesome and catastrophic battle through dramatic re-enactments, archive footage, and personal testimony from survivors.
