This video examines Lyndon Johnson's increased commitment to South Vietnam. With Ho Chi Minh on the verge of return and South Vietnam on the verge of collapse, Johnson was determined to do what it took to prevent either thing from happening. Though war was still undeclared, L.B.J.'s massive buildup left little doubt that the U.S. was indeed at war. Broad in scope and responsible in detail, this video makes good use of the huge amount of archival film available on the war. Its serious tone and responsible history make it entirely appropriate for use in the college classroom.
