Summary
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.
