On January 20, 1968, North Vietnamese Army units attacked a U.S. Marine Corps company on patrol near the Khe Sanh Combat Base. This firefight soon exploded into one of the most significant engagements of the Vietnam War, when between 15,000 and 30,000 North Vietnamese troops, having carefully surrounded Khe Sanh, assaulted a garrison of approximately 6,000 U.S. Marines. The siege at Khe Sanh lasted for nearly 3 months, during which time the massive Communist Tet Offensive erupted.
