In January of 1968, Ho Chi Minh launched the Tet Offensive, a massive, surprise, coordinated attack that mobilized 84,000 troops against cities and villages across South Vietnam. (1/10)
As news of the offensive broke in the United States, CBS anchor Walter Cronkite voiced the nation's confusion and anger saying, "What the hell is going on? I thought we were winning the war." (2/10)
