Summary:
Anh Tuan was a North Vietnamese Major General, born in Hue under the French. He recalls the failed Geneva Agreements, which had aimed at elections in 1956, soon to be followed by unification of the country. He argues the failure to unify the county was a failure of the South Vietnamese leadership. He recounts his impressions of the American escalation starting in 1965, only ending with the 1968 Tet Offensive. Hoang Anh Tuan characterizes the Tet Offensive as being purely strategic: its goal was not to capture cities and towns in the south but rather, step-by-step and starting with this dramatic offensive, to break their enemies' will to fight.
