Both sides claim Khe Sanh as a victory, with the Vietnamese pointing out the fact that the Americans withdrew and abandoned the base in July 1968.

Prior to visiting Khe Sanh, I had only seen the American point of view. At Khe Sanh there is a war museum which gives a very different perspective.

To be honest, my first reaction was, that's not right. The Americans won the Battle of Khe Sanh. Some US veterans find the exhibits in the museum quite upsetting. One had written in the visitors' book, 'That's the American flag you are kicking.'

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
