I am actually searching data on the bombing of My Son, near Hue, Vietnam. I know there is an ex US army base south of DaNang which is even closer to that site than Hue, maybe somebody here knows about that.

Despite looking through dozens of web sites, I cannot find any details on the events of My Son. I met an Australian veteran who said he was here in those times and said it was also in 68 the same time as the battle in Hue happened.

I had also come across a Vietnamese travel site (can’t find it anymore, sorry no link) that had claimed that the bombing of My Son was a mistake because there were actually no Viet Cong there, it was merely assumed.

Are there any of you who can tell me more details about this, please.

Hi, I found this travel guide about My Son. Perhaps it is the one you remember? Although this guide mentions that the VC used My Son as a major base. I once worked with a vet that was there with www.2ndbattalion9thmarines.org...
Good luck on your quest.

How is The Battle of Hue in any way related to Ancient & Lost Civilizations???

The Battle of Hue occurred in the modern past, in 1968!!
Not in the Ancient Past!!
