America went to South Vietnam in 1955 with the goal of stopping the spread of communism in Southeast Asia, but after two decades of violence, suffering and controversy, the long war finally ended with South Vietnam's surrender. Vietnam was an intensely publicised war, the first that came roaring into the living rooms of America every night. As U.S. casualties mounted, the negative aspects of the war touched off a wave of protest that rocked the foundation of American society. Few who lived through this time will ever forget this period of drastic change, especially the veterans of this long and brutal war. This programme tells the true story of personal heroism and sacrifice, set against the backdrop of one of the most controversial wars in history.
