US Marines fighting in Hue, near North Vietnam, during the Tet offensive. In January 1968, the North Vietnamese Army and the Viet Cong launched a large series of attacks in what came to be known as the Tet Offensive. In military terms it was a huge setback for North Vietnam and for the Viet Cong. But images of fierce fighting, killings, and specially the attempt on the US Embassy in Saigon, were contemplated with shock by the American public opinion, fueling a growing opposition to the war.
