In Their Own Words: The Tet Offensive Vietnam 1968

AMERICAN SOLDIERS RECOUNT EXPERIENCES AT
"WIDOW'S VILLAGE" and THE BATTLE FOR SAIGON DURING THE TET OFFENSIVE

There is always something lost in the telling of the experiences of others. There is always something real and personal lost in the telling of the experiences of others. We have chosen to share some of the hours and days of the Tet Offensive in the words of those who fought the many battles- who experienced them, who were there.
