    One thought on “After Tet: The Bloodiest Year in Vietnam”

    1. Another fascinating book on Vietnam down. After Tet focuses on the large NVA/VC offensives after the Tet attacks. Even though the Communist forces had lost many during Tet, there were three large follow-on offensives. Costly battles surged from the highlands to the Mekong Delta. The author correctly states that the battles were indecisive or a stalemate. The communist forces lost significantly yet melted away to Laos or Cambodia to lick their wounds. American/ARVN forces drove the Communists out [...]

    2. An outstanding survey of the year 1968 in Vietnam. Spector discusses the major combat operations of that year, but puts a sharp focus on key issues in social history: The draft, drug abuse, everyday life on U.S. military bases, and so on. The chapter on race relations in Vietnam, especially Spector's account of the Long Binh stockade riot (or "uprising", if you approach the topic from a different perspective), makes this book essential for students of the Vietnam War and for scholars of the 1960 [...]

But at the same time, we get a vision of a US army muddling through with great personnel.Spector is great at weaving the homefront, the White [...]

    4. This was a good synopsis of the Tet debacle. Again, my heart was rent by the pain of the young men struggling to overcome the viciousness that was Tet.
