The Tet Offensive and Uprising was one of the largest military campaigns of the Viet Nam War, launched on January 30, 1968, by forces of the North Vietnamese People's Army of Viet Nam against the forces of the South Vietnamese Army of the Republic of Viet Nam, the United States Armed Forces, and their allies. 

It was a campaign of surprise attacks against military and civilian command and control centers throughout South Viet Nam. The name of the offensive comes from the Tet holiday, the Vietnamese New Year, when the first major attacks took place./.
