Their story is in danger of being lost to history. These are the men who won every battle in a lost war. Through a collection of color Vietnam footage never seen by the public from private collections, museums, the U.S. government, veterans’ and news organizations, as well as sources from Vietnam, they tell their stories and relive their struggles, courage and fears.
From the massive initial troop build-up in 1965 to the fall of Saigon a decade later, students will see how the conflict unfolds against a backdrop of domestic change and upheaval. Primary source footage and the personal stories of those who experienced the war help illustrate the impact of U.S. involvement in Vietnam*, and give students the tools necessary to analyze U.S. policies and the consequences of the escalation.
