Hue is the former Imperial capital of Vietnam, spared from conflict for decades until January 31, 1968. On this day, the start of the lunar New Year, a national holiday, and marked by a mutual ceasefire, the North Vietnamese launched a massive strike - the now-infamous Tet Offensive. Hue was overrun, with the only troops available to counterattack being a handful of Marine companies eight miles south of the city. This photographic history captures the savage battle that followed for four excruciating weeks. The Marines of Task force X-Ray fought house by house, street by street to take the city so central to Vietnamese life. Through photographs taken in the heat of the action, readers will follow one of the war's most important campaigns, as inch by inch ground is gained and every alley, street corner, window and house could be the last.
