The Spring General Offensive began in the early morning of January 31, 1968, when liberation forces simultaneously launched attacks on bases of US troops and the US-backed southern government in cities such as Hue, Da Nang, Can Tho and Saigon.

The General Offensive marked a strategic turning point for the resistance war against the US and its allies. It also helped lead to the liberation of southern Vietnam and national reunification in 1975.

The historical event has become a symbol of the strong will and determination and aspiration for peace and independence of the entire Vietnamese nation.
