194 VVN – The Tet Offensive as seen by Mack Payne

Tet Offensive of 1968

Wanton destruction caused by the North Vietnamese during the Tet Offensive.

In previous episodes we have looked at the major battles of the Vietnam War. In this episode I am going to talk about the mother of all battles in Vietnam – the Tet Offensive of 1968. As with Operation Lam Son 719, I witnessed the Tet Offensive from start to finish from a viewpoint “slap – dab” in the middle of the thing.

The Tet Offensive left an impression on me that has lasted a lifetime. I still think about of the lesson it demonstrated and it is critical that we all should be aware of the lesson and make sure it doesn’t happen again. Listen to the episode and discover that important lesson.
