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.

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 was the longest war in America's history and the most divisive in more than a century. Even today, decades after the fall of Saigon, U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia remains misunderstood, misinterpreted and misrepresented. 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.
