Victory At Hue - Vietnamese soldiers celebrate their victory over the North Vietnamese invaders of Hue with the raising of their national colors on the 200-foot flag pole from which a Viet Cong flag had flown for the 24 days of the battle.
Exuberant soldiers unfurl their national colors on the south wall of the Citadel, overlooking the Perfume River, hours later, they assaulted and recaptured the nearby Imperial Palace, the last remaining point in the Citadel held by the Communist. (68-0116-D&E)
