A part of the series America in the 20th Century.

It was the longest war in America’s history and the most divisive in more than a century. This program explores the genesis of America’s painful military “quagmire” from the roots of Vietnamese nationalism through a century of French colonial rule to the first Indochina war; it then takes viewers from John F. Kennedy’s initial deployment of military advisers through increases and escalations under the Johnson administration to the final, tragic moments of Saigon’s fall in the spring of 1975.
