General Note / OCR

Helicopters fill the skies, panic fills the streets. It is 1975. After years of brutal fighting, Saigon will fall in days. For Americans and their Vietnamese allies, the emotions of a lifetime are compressed into a few shattering hours. There will be courage and dignity^DELguilt and shame. Twenty years later, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and former President Ford offer a new perspective on the U.S. role in the chaotic evacuation. South Vietnamese citizens loyal to the United States tell their stories of chaos and duplicity that led to the collapse of Saigon. Relive this fateful time with rare news footage and eyewitness accounts from both sides of the conflict
