Summary
This documentary series traces the U.S. involvement in Vietman from members of the U.S. SAS fighting with Ho Chi Mihn against the Japanese in WWII, through Lyndon Johnson's massive escalation to defeat Ho Chi Mihn's North Vietnamese forces in 1963. Includes interviews with key U.S. and Vietnamese military and political operatives, as well as recently de-classified State Department and White House tapes and files that highlight the internal negotiations, blunders, mis-communications, and arrogance behind years of fatal strategy that cost 3,000,000 Vietnamese lives, 55,000 U.S. lives, and at least one president, his office. Interviews are conducted with Robert MacNamara, Gen. John Vogt, Paul Kettenburg, Daniel Ellsberg, Jack Valenti, Rober Hillsman and many others
