The fall of Saigon

Image of item
DVD

DVD.

"The end of the tunnel": On April 29, 1975 - 10 years after America had committed ground combat troops to Vietnam and two years after a cease-fire agreement had failed to stop the fighting - North Vietnamese communists toppled the South Vietnamese government in Saigon in a lightning offensive that startled the world. "Peace is at hand": While American and Vietnamese soldiers continued to clash in battle, diplomats in Paris argued about making peace. "Homefront USA": Through troubled years of controversy and violence, U.S. casualities mounted, victory remained elusive, and American opinion moved from general approval to general dissatisfaction with the Vietnam War.
