- Program Description
“With the withdrawal of the French from Indochina in 1954, the United States took over the responsibility to maintain the settlement that had created four autonomous units, North and South Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. An intended plebiscite to determine the wishes of the population in the permanent settlement was not held, and the North Vietnamese, under the leadership of Ho Chi Minh and supported by Russia and China, invaded the South and a full-scale was was underway. The American commitment grew through the incumbencies of Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson, and ultimately became a quagmire which desperately divided the American people.
