Game description: In a conflict that lasted 11 years and took more than three million lives, four men experience the longest 28 days ever. Cut off behind enemy lines during the 1968 Tet Offensive with no way to contact help, four young, barely trained soldiers realize that their only hope for survival is to head into the heart of darkness. Now, with few rations and dwindling ammunition, you must guide these soldiers across 100 miles of ruthless terrain crawling with unseen enemies. As you drive a wide range of vehicles, shoot era-specific weapons, and avoid enemy booby traps, remember--you're not trying to win any war--you're just trying to make it home alive.
Conflict: Vietnam opens in 1968, just days before the Tet Offensive begins, as 19-year old Private Harold Kahler is introduced to his squadmates on a Huey gunship while heading to "Ghost Town" a 101st Airborne Division base in South Vietnam. 28-year old Staff Sergeant Frank "Ragman" Wier is the leader, highly familiar with the Vietnam War from two previous tours of duty. Corporals Bruce "Junior" Lesh and Will "Hoss" Schafer comprise the rest of the squad. The 1968 Tet Offensive occurs just after Kahler's first combat patrol, and he and the rest of Ragman's squad soon find themselves cut off behind enemy lines after the helicopters deploying them on a night patrol are shot down.
