Fellow soldiers are seen dragging an injured comrade in Hue. The ancient city of Hue in South Vietnam was still relatively untouched by the war until the Viet Cong seized control of the city as part of the Tet Offensive. It then became the site of one of the bloodiest battles in the war between January 31 and March 3, 1968, with almost 6,000 civilians dying and almost the entire city laid to ruin. There were about 600 dead and more than 3,000 wounded on the side of the U.S. and South Vietnamese forces while an estimated 1,000 of the North Vietnamese perished in the month-long battle before the Citadel had been recaptured.
