Re: X-Post: MiWSR: Smither on Moïse, "The Myths of Tet: The Most Misunderstood Event of the Vietnam War"

First, thanks for this posted Review. Prof. Moise, with whom have had previous discussions, not just about this subject, attempts here to answer many of the historic issues and subjects surrounding Tet.

In a couple of them will agree with the points made by this Review as book conclusions. In a couple of others have maybe commented elsewhere but will posit on this Review[not having read Prof. Moise's book] the points do not reach satisfactory presentation.

Re: X-Post: MiWSR: Cyr on Bowden, "Huế 1968: A Turning Point of the American War in Vietnam"

Focus below is an excerpted portion of the Review. It tells the story of Tet abnd its after effects upon Vietnam war and American political-military views. This particular moment in history is set forth quite well; being in DC at that time as part of the US Govt., the overall shock of seeing how far from victory US forces were by the abilities demonstrated in this determined Communist assault upon all of So.
