Episode Summary

Fall of Saigon
At the Fall of Saigon, the end of the Vietnam War was finally in sight. North Vietnamese troops entered Saigon on April 30, 1975 and the South Vietnamese forces accepted defeat. The war was over, and the war was lost: at this point the unification of Vietnam into a single Communist state could begin, but many South Vietnamese scrambled to evacuate the country alongside the American troops. Some escaped, but many did not. Witness the beginnings of a journey to freedom and uncertainty as undertaken by many Vietnamese. These desperate scenes took place in a tense few hours in which families were separated and many bids for freedom were denied.moreless
