Battle of Hue
Click Certificate for larger image
At the height of anti-war protests in the United States, North Vietnamese strategists selected the city of Hue to launch a major battle solely for American public consumption. North Vietnams goal during the Battle of Hue was not to conquer the city nor convert its residents to the Communist cause. North Vietnams sole reason for igniting the Battle was to inflict as many fatal casualties as possible on American forces, estimating correctly that American anti-war sentiment would greatly increase. In this effort North Vietnam was successful because American civilian leadership failed to educate the public that stopping Chinese-led Communism in the Pacific Theater. not the number of American casualties in any battle was the Allies main goal. North Vietnam achieved no other success during the Battle. Authorized for Republic of Vietnam service during the Operation Period.
