Vietnam and the War [electronic resource]

This film provides an overview of Vietnam's early history, French colonization, the Indochina War, and the start of the Vietnam War. During French occupation, Ho Chi Minh started the Viet Minh Independence Movement that grew into an army during WWII. As nationalism evolved into communism, the U.S. feared a Soviet backed takeover of Southeast Asia-known as the Domino Theory-and supported the French against Ho Chi Minh's National Liberation Front during the Indochina War. After Vietnam was partitioned in 1954, they continued to support South Vietnam and the Diem Regime. After JFK's assassination and the Gulf of Tonkin incident, Johnson increased combat troops and ordered Operation Rolling Thunder, drawing America into bloody conflict.

The TV War [electronic resource]

This film examines Vietnam War events between Kennedy's assassination and Nixon's presidential election. Over half a million troops were deployed, but Ho Chi Minh's strategy was to outlast the American occupation. After early U.S. domination through Operation Thunder, three years of B52 raids, and napalm and Agent Orange drops, the Viet Cong Tet Offensive turned the tide in 1968. Television coverage of the surprise attack and nightly combat footage dashed American hopes of victory and turned public opinion against the war. The Anti-War Movement gained momentum when Mohammed Ali refused to be inducted into the army and Martin Luther King called for unification of the Anti-War and Civil Rights Movements. Nixon promised to withdraw troops but secretly targeted the Ho Chi Minh Trail in C [...]

Last Days in Vietnam

Loading...
"April 1975. During the chaotic final days of the Vietnam War, as the North Vietnamese Army closed in on Saigon, the South Vietnamese resistance crumbled. The United States had only a skeleton crew of diplomats and military operatives still in the country. With the lives of thousands of South Vietnamese hanging in the balance, those in control faced an impossible choice -- who would go and who would be left behind to face brutality, imprisonment or even death. At the risk of their careers and possible courts-martial, a handful of individuals took matters into their own hands. Engaging in unsanctioned and often makeshift operations, they waged a desperate effort to evacuate as many South Vietnamese as possible"--Container.
