IMO the war was lost in the USA as Damien said, but also i think the US tactics were a little off. From what i know the US soldiers were dropped off at areas, and the were to walk and patrol areas that Viet Kong is hiddin in. I think it wasn't an organized tactics that cost US too many lives. Platoons were send out in different areas to sweep across a certain area for Viet Kong, plus the terrain played a factor in this too.
