Product Description

 

This trio of figures portrays one of the most famous incidents of the entire TET Offensive... In the early hours of January 30, 1968 a Viet Cong guerrilla group attacked the U.S. Embassy in Saigon.  Blasting holes in the perimeter wall V.C. sappers broke into the embassy compound and took over several outlying buildings but did not actually get into the central multistorey complex.

Although the V.C. caused severe damage and killed and wounded a number of embassy military policeman and personnel they themselves were, after several hours, all killed, wounded or captured.

One of the most famous photos of the battle in and around the Embassy shows a young walking wounded V.C. guerrilla being marched outside the compound wall by two American MP’s... I’ve often wondered what happened to him. (3 figure set).
