New War Stories: Hanoi and the 1968 Tet Offensive

IAS/SIR Speaker Series: Professor Lien-Hang T. Nguyen, Columbia University, History
Based on new archival materials from Hanoi, this talk focuses on the strategy deliberation surrounding the 1968 Tet Offensive. The lecture will focus on new war stories - a tale of attempted murder, the arrests of spies and the involvement of scheming allies - to further our understanding of Hanoi's greatest strategic victory and gravest tactical defeat upon the occasion of its 50th anniversary.
