HUE, SOUTH VIETNAM, 31 JANUARY 1968:
In the early morning hours of January
31, 1968, a division-sized force of PAVN and Vietcong soldiers
launched a coordinated attack on the city of Hu?. Their strategic
objective was to "liberate" the entire city to help
sweep the Communist insurgents into power. At 02:33, a signal
flare lit up the night sky, and two battalions from the PAVN 6th
Regiment attacked the western bank of the fortress-like Citadel
on the northern side of the city. Their objective was to capture
the Mang Ca Garrison (ARVN 1st Division headquarters in the Citadel),
the Tây L?c Airfield, and the Imperial Palace. The PAVN
4th Regiment launched a simultaneous attack on the Military Assistance
Command Vietnam (MACV) compound in the new city on the south side
of the river.
For a system that was borne at TOBRUK, a
great deal of feedback has come our way with one word: HUE. Fans
of the seminal flick, "Full Metal Jacket"? Perhaps.
Two would be designers took a crack at it, but despite their best,
honest efforts, it was too overwhelming. Not to worry, Ray commissioned
a map, put the pros on it, and we ARE PUTTING YOU INTO THE HELL
OF THE TET OFFENSIVE at Hue. All combat counters needed to play,
and that's a BIG pile of ALL NEW die-cut evocative counters --
and a 2nd Generation Vietnam War presentation since CH already
broke this ground with LZ X-Ray. It's all there, you need to be
there. Get there.
