Days of Affliction
by Brian Carland
Days Of Affliction is a story of the Tet Offensive of 1968 from the viewpoint of both its Vietnamese and American participants. On the eve of Tet, the lunar New Year, Viet Cong forces concentrate outside a provincial capital in South Vietnam. While the Viet Cong gather, two American soldiers view Tet eve, with its communist declared truce, as an opportunity to enjoy an illicit night in the town.
