Vietnam: An Historical Document

  • 1975 ----- color ----- 57 min ----- 16mm
  • Walter Cronkite anchors this review of a war that remains a tragic part of American history. Television reporters present news clips of the stories that each reported at the time: corruption in the Vietnamese government; the My Lai massacre; the Paris Peace Talks; the Tet offensive; Nixon's order to invade Cambodia; American protests, including Kent State; the mini-rebellion of Charlie Company; marijuana; the collapse of South Vietnam; and, most surprising, and forgotten, the World Airways evacuation of Saigon. A lasting photographic memory of a war most Americans would like to forget.
