For decades, war in Vietnam was the central drama on the stage of Southeast Asia. The Vietnamese had fought the Japanese and French Colonial troops to a standstill. The North Vietnamese and Viet Cong were prepared to fight a war for total liberation. The United States had become involved to save the Government of South Vietnam from destruction by what was seen as part of a monolithic communist plot to take over the world. Yet American actions and policies failed to win the hearts and minds of the Vietnamese people.
This was an intensely publicized war, the first television war that came roaring into the living rooms of America every night. Eventually, the negative side of the war spilled over into America, touching off a wave of protest and provoking a crisis of social upheaval that rocked the foundation of American society. Few Americans who lived through these times will ever forget this period of drastic change, especially the veterans of this long and brutal conflict whose stories are featured in this series.
