After Kennedy's assassination in 1963, Lyndon Johnson inherited "revolving door" coups in Saigon as none of Diem's successors was able to control the South. Increasingly the NLF guerillas controlled the countryside as the South Vietnam army disintegrated. The Tonkin Gulf resolution precipitated raids on the North and the Marines landed at Danang. Secretly, Johnson approved open-ended deployment of U.S. troops.
An authorized dub of the WGBH-TV program, originally broadcast on the Public Broadcast Service.
Recorded by Instructional Televison, Indiana University, Bloomington on May 10, 1984.
