Very nice work!

When I get the time I'll work on a scenario to make use of it.
Consider a campaign that utilizes the entire map but moves from battle to battle on that map. The battle for Hue ( as you know ) lasted over a month. You could use the entire map for some or snip it into smaller map sections for a specific engagements using the cut and paste feature of the extended map editor

This was one of my reference maps. I found three good ones, used the map utility for the contouring and then compared and contrasted the old maps with the new ones to see what was/wasn't there in 68. I also used Google Earth to check out vegetation, which I again compared and contrasted to the military maps.

Here is a map of the area West of Hue in which Air-Cav and Airborne troops operated during the battle (2/12th, 1/7th, 5/7th Cav. and 2/501st Airborne).

A number of important operations were undertaken in this area to prevent reinforcement and re-supply of the NVA in the citadel.

The battles fought were centred around the villages of Thon Que Chu and Thon La Chu.

It will be a while again before I undertake a project of that scope.

Nice documentary on the battle to clear the south side of the Perfume River.

Any progress on Battle of Hue scenarios?
Just finished Mark Bowden's (Blackhoawk Down) book, 'Hue 1968'.
Nasty battle - good book.

I've visited the city, and especially around the Citadel, it would be a helluva place to have to assault.
Checked in here (after several years) to see if I could try my hand at fighting the battle.
It would certainly be a very different sort of Vietnam scenario (more like Stalingrad) and is arguably the major battle of Vietnam (American) war.

On my list ... I'm still (haphazardly) doing research on the battle in my spare time.

I'll look into that "Hue 1968" book ... thanks!
