Fifty years after the Vietnam war, historians are able to reflect on its larger meaning for Vietnamese and global history. What motivated the Vietnamese communists to start the offensive?  How did it affect the country? And how did the world react to it? Professor Lorenz Lüthi from the Department of History and Classical Studies explores this seminal event.
