Tet Offensive in Vietnam War
January 30, 1968

North Vietnamese troops and Viet Cong guerrillas launch surprise attacks throughout South Vietnam on the Lunar New Year, or Tet. Rockets, grenades and fires reduce portions of Saigon to rubble. U.S. and South
Vietnamese forces eventually repel the offensive, and the North sustains heavy losses. Though militarily a failure, the offensive undermines public support in the U.S. for the war.
