Hue 1968: A Turning Point of the American War in Vietnam by Mark Bowden
The first battle book from Mark Bowden since his #1 New York Times bestseller Black Hawk Down,
Hue 1968 is the story of the centerpiece of the Tet Offensive and a turning point in the American War in Vietnam. With unprecedented access to war archives in the U.S. and Vietnam, Bowden narrates each stage of this crucial battle through multiple viewpoints. Played out over 24 days and ultimately costing 10,000 lives, the Battle of Hue was by far the bloodiest of the entire war.
