In January 1968, North Vietnamese forces occupied the ancient Imperial Citadel of Hue in one of the surprise attacks of the Tet Offensive. Don McCullin accompanied the 5th US Marines throughout almost two weeks of savage street fighting to retake the Citadel. This was an exceptionally dangerous assignment, in which McCullin was under constant fire. He took some of the most powerful photographs of his career but also experienced, for the first time, the effects of combat stress.
 
This photograph was taken by Nik Wheeler using Don McCullin's camera.
 
This image was included in the exhibition "Shaped by War: Photographs by Don McCullin" at the Imperial War Museum North, Manchester, UK (6 February to 13 June 2010)
