After the symbolic ending of the Vietnam War in 1973, American diplomats and troops were stationed in Saigon until 1975. With orders from Washington to evacuate, the troops were faced with some serious ethical issues. How could the American troops save the lives of their South-Vietnamese comrades when the Vietcong were on the offensive against Saigon from the north? LAST DAYS IN VIETNAM tells the powerful story of how high-ranking diplomats and troops from the US Army risked treason to save the lives of Vietnamese soldiers and civilians.
