Looking back at the Siege of Khe Sanh
Next to the Tet Offensive and the Battle of Hue, the siege of Khe Sanh is considered to be one of the most important military operations during the Vietnam War.
During the Vietnam War from January 21 to July 9, 1968 U.S. forces were defending the Khe Sanh Combat Base against the North Vietnamese People's Army. The battle was proclaimed a victory by the United States, although the combat base was abandoned after the battle. In this respect, Khe Sanh was a tactical US victory - but a strategic defeat.
