Transcript of Tet Offensive timeline

Tet Offensive
January 31, 1968
70,000 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong forces launched the Tet Offensive (this was named for the lunar new year holiday called Tet), there was a set of fierce attacks on more than 100 cities and towns in South Vietnam. The Tet offensive was a series of surprise attacks by the Vietcong (rebel forces).
August, 1968
Third Attack
A third phase launched in August, which lasted six weeks.
September 23, 1968
The American war effort in Vietnam was hit hard by the North Vietnamese Tet Offensive, which ended on this day in 1968. Claims by President Lyndon Johnson that the offensive was a complete failure were misleading. Though the North Vietnamese death toll was 20 times that of its enemies, strongholds previously thought impenetrable had been shaken. The prospect of increasing American forces added substantial strength to the anti-war movement and led to Johnson’s announcement that he would not seek re-election.
May 4, 1968
a second phase also launched simultaneous assaults on smaller cities and towns on May 4 and stretched into June.
