VIETNAM: FROM DIEN BIEN PHU
TO PEACE WITH HONOR
3 DVD Set
This definitive documentary focuses on the history of America's involvement in Indochina, from the defeat of the French at Dien Bien Phu to the reunification of Vietnam after the last American troops left Saigon, with footage from Vietnamese, Chinese and French combat photographers rarely seen in the West.
Dien Bien Phu - The Legacy
In 1953 the French and Viet Minh forces had been at war for seven years. The climatic encounter of the war occurred at Dien Bien Phu, a small hamlet in northwestern Vietnam, in a battle that neither side could afford to lose.
The Undeclared War & Search and Destroy
After the departure of the French, America slowly began to send advisors to South Vietnam to counter the activities of the Viet Minh and the threat of invasion from the North. By 1965, Ho Chi Minh's communist revolution was on the verge of complete victory. Desperate to stem the Communist tide, the United States made the fateful decision to send combat troops to Vietnam.
Showdown in the Iron Triangle & War on the DMZ
The free-fire Zone of the Iron Triangle was one of the deadliest areas of operation in South Vietnam, and the no-man's land of the demilitarized zone in the mountains of Vietnam proved to be more killing ground than DMZ.
Siege at Khe Sanh
In early 1968, American Marines and allied forces fought the North Vietnamese Army in one of the most dramatic battles of the Vietnam War. For 77 days, two powerful NVA divisions laid siege to the U.S. Marine Corps base at Khe Sanh.
Air War Vietnam & Rolling Thunder
From early 1963 until the end of 1973 the United States mounted an aggressive bombing campaign against North Vietnam. At first restricted to targets south of the 20th Parallel, the air-war fighting in the south escalated, culminating in the so-called Christmas bombings of Hanoi and Haiphong in December 1973.
Peace with Honor
The Paris Peace Accord finally brought an end to the Vietnam War, and the last U.S. soldiers left Vietnam on March 29, 1973. Two years later, Saigon fell to the North Vietnamese. Vietnam was re-united.
