WHAT: Vietnam: The Tet Offensive
WHEN: Thursday, January 25, 2018 from 7 pm to 8:30 pm
WHERE: William G. McGowan Theater
Erik B. Villard and a panel will discuss the Tet Offensive and Villard’s book Combat Operations: Staying the Course, September 1967–October 1968. The panel will explore the 12-month period when the Viet Cong and their North Vietnamese allies embarked on a new and more aggressive strategy that shook the foundations of South Vietnam and forced the United States to reevaluate its military calculations in Southeast Asia. The allied situation at the end of this period appeared to be only marginally better than it had been in late 1967; the peace talks in Paris had stalled, and American public opinion had turned decisively against the war. A book signing of Combat Operations will follow the program.
