Battle for Hue City Raw Combat Footage WITH SOUND

The Hotel Company, 2nd Battalion of the 5th Marines of the 3rd Division, maneuvers against enemy fire to take the Hue City Provisional Headquarters on February 6, 1968, as a part of the Tet Offensive in the Vietnam War. The film depicts the 1st Platoon’s entry into the building, and into the open courtyard under the orders of Capt. Christmas, as mortar shells, continue to detonate and the platoon throws grenades and fires M-16s. These Marines are followed by men of the 2nd and 3rd Platoons, led by Sgt. John Miller and Lt. Mike Lambert. Marines search for and bandage wounded men, while GySgt Frank Thomas, PFC Walter Kaczmarek, and PFC Alan McDonald take down the Viet Cong flag, and replace it with the United States’ flag.

    Somewhere, in the darkest recesses of a foreboding alley, stuck in time, neither present nor past, there's a tired, hungry and faceless Marine checking his corners and waving his fire team forward as he continues to engage with and destroy his enemy in a battle that no longer is, and maybe never was.
