The First War in Vietnam [electronic resource]

After the Second World War, Great Britain let go her empire in Asia with relatively good grace; France was in less of a hurry to abandon Indochina, particularly with the specter (or bogey) of a Communist Vietnamese regime in the wings. This program covers the negotiations toward peace and the beginnings of war, the events leading to the Battle of Dien Bien Phu and the defeat of the French, and the Geneva Convention of 1954 and the division of Indochina into North and South, which effectively recognized North Vietnam as an independent country. Because the Geneva Convention was signed by the Chinese and the U.S. did not recognize Mao's China, the U.S. would not sign the Convention; that, and the division of Vietnam, set the stage for the second Vietnam War.

Vietnam [electronic resource]: The Wandering Souls

Using war records, old maps, and other archival materials, two of Australia's Vietnam veterans have produced the first comprehensive account of where nearly 4,000 missing Vietnamese soldiers might be found. In a country where most families lost someone during the war, the enduring grief is not knowing where a loved one fell. Without that knowledge many Vietnamese believe their dead will wander endlessly and without peace. Reporting on the impact of the new revelations, this film also follows a third Australian veteran who has kept some powerful reminders of his time in combat-a journal, a book of poetry, and a scarf owned by one or more North Vietnamese soldiers. The journey to return the diary to its author's mother becomes an emotionally cathartic pilgrimage back to Vietnam, one th [...]

America in the 20th Century: Volume 8 Vietnam

Vietnam explodes the genesis of America's 'quagmire' -- from the roots of Vietnamese nationalism, through a century of French colonialism and the first Indochina war, to the final tragic moments in the spring of 1975"--Original container.
