Summary
Reveals how captured enemy documents indicated that U.S. military intelligence grossly underestimated the size of the Vietcong's forces. This data was suppressed, leaving the American public, the press, the Congress and perhaps President Johnson with the impression that the enemy had decreased in numbers just before their 1968 Tet offensive
