Tibet vs Vietnam Mark II! This time around, the war was not caused by the Trungs’ hubris, but rather Tibetan opportunism, striking at the nearly undefended Vietnamese cities! I’m describing cities as undefended a lot, I know, but that wasn’t exactly my idea, was it?
Anyway, Tibet clearly has the upper hand and Nam must act quickly. While Hoa Lu could probably be shrugged off after a while, losing Can Tho would have a major impact on Vietnamese morale.
