With unprecedented access to war archives in the U.S and Vietnam and interviews with participants from both sides, Bowden narrates each stage of this crucial battle through multiple viewpoints Played out over 24 days and ultimately costing 10,000 lives, the Battle of Hue was by far the bloodiest of the entire war When it ended, the American debate was never again about winning, only about how to leave Hue 1968 is a gripping and moving account of this pivotal moment.
