The Siege at Khe Sanh was a culmination of political and tactical ingredients. Both
sides wanted this small plateau in the Northwest corner of the Quang Tri province. It
was the Northwestern most outpost south of the I Corps Tactical Zone. American
Marines, Army Artillery/Special Forces, Air Force Bombers and Fighters, and Naval
Fighters all played serious roles in the eventual victory at Khe Sanh in April of 1968.
