Men walking in the street, one injured during Vietnam Saigon war, 1968. The First Battle of Saigon, fought during the Tet Offensive of the Vietnam War, was . In late January 1968 the Vietcong launched the Tet Offensive attacking U.S and South Vietnamese positions across South Vietnam. Saigon was the main focal point of the offensive, but a total takeover of the capital was not intended or feasible. They rather had six main targets in the city which 35 battalions of Vietcong were to attack and capture: the ARVN Joint General Staff compound near Tan Son Nhat International Airport, the Independence Palace, the US embassy, the Tan Son Nhut Air Base, the Long Binh Naval Headquarters and the National Radio Station. Because it was Tết (the Vietnamese New Year), the sound of firecrackers exploding masked that of gunfire, giving an element of surprise to the Vietcong attacks. men, street, vietnam, saigon, war, people, injured, soldiers, 1968
