The Tet Offensive

In the early hours of January 31, 1968, the Vietnam military launched one of its largest campaigns, the Tet offensive. The campaign occurred over the lunar Chinese New Year holiday, which is also the Tet holiday period; hence, the name is Tet offensive. Recent tradition purports that this period was the time of truce. The campaign involved surprise attacks against both the military and civilians in the South of Vietnam aiming to gain command and control. The offensive party comprised of Viet Cong forces and Vietnamese forces. The attack was on South Vietnam, the United States, and their allies (Wirtz 38).
