For the Marines, it was their first taste of city fighting since Seoul, and it was a battle they were not trained for. They had, by early 1968, experienced everything that jungle warfare had to offer, but combat in an urban environment presented another matter entirely. Nevertheless, the fight that developed in the streets of Huế would give the Marine Corps one of its most memorable victories. For 31 days, Huế was a place where examples of old firepower fought alongside examples of new firepower in a clash of arms that marked the end of the Tết Offensive as well as a turning point in the war in Vietnam.
