Dig deep: Saigon house hides war tunnel


At the end of the tunnel lies a three meter square secret vault for soldiers and weapons. Here, Tran Hai Phung, commander of the Saigon-Gia Dinh Military Region, took shelter between 1967 and 1968 ahead of the Tet Offensive. The latter was launched on January 30, the first day of Vietnam’s Lunar New Year in 1968, and saw over 80,000 soldiers from the north and Vietnam National Liberation Front (NLF) launch surprise attacks on more than 100 cities and outposts throughout southern Vietnam.
