About the Show

Through rare media reports and battlefield images, THE LOST TAPES: TET OFFENSIVE brings to life one of the most startling and pivotal moments of the war. In January 1968, America thought it was winning the war, but Viet Cong and North Vietnam mounted a devastating nationwide surprise attack on Tết– the Vietnamese New Year. The city of Hue, the cultural and intellectual epicenter of Vietnam, was fully taken by the North Vietnamese in just a few hours. US and ARVN forces slowly recaptured the city but left much of it destroyed in what would be one of the bloodiest battles of the entire war.
