Product description

Review

Meticulously analytical... excellent... gives us the clearest picture yet of what happened in Vietnam * USA Today * Hue 1968 is a meticulous and vivid retelling of an important battle. * New York Times * An extraordinary feat of journalism... To understand what it is to be human, you must understand war, which is unique to our species. In Hue 1968, we read about humanity placed in a crucible, out of which comes both refined steel and slag. Here the best and worst of human behaviour is exposed in glaring light. -- Karl Marlantes * Wall Street Journal * Bowden tells this story with a power and a wealth of detail that no previous history of this offensive has approached - this is another instantly-recognizable classic of military history. * Christian Science Monitor * Hue 1968 is, by far, the most comprehensive (and balanced) coverage on this battle I've seen. -- Brigadier General Mike Downs, USMC (ret.) Hue 1968 unravels one of the great mysteries of our time... Did the Battle of Hue end up as a victory or defeat? The answer depends on who's asking and who's telling. Bowden takes on both roles and does it well. -- Lieutenant Colonel Charles A. Krohn (ret.), author of THE LOST BATTALION OF TET This book is a tragic tale of misunderstanding but also one of great heroism and sacrifice by those who fought in the streets of Hue and in the nearby rice paddies and villages. -- Brigadier General Howard T. Prince II, USMC (ret.), Commanding Officer, Bravo Company, 5/7 Cavalry, 1968 There is no more complete, accurate and detailed book. It reads like a novel even though is it made up almost exclusively of very personal accounts. -- John Wear, president of the USMC Vietnam Tankers Association

Book Description

Bowden's most ambitious work yet, Hue 1968 is the story of the centrepiece of the Tet Offensive and a turning point in the American war in Vietnam.
