January 31, 1968, the turning point in the Vietnam War, The Tet Offensive.
The Tet offensive brought the war to the cities for the first time and the resulting devastation created many refugees. Taken by Eddie Adams, this photograph shows war in its purest, most personal form. Adams died in September, 2004. The Washington Post ran this story.

"Some day this war's gonna end."
