Why America Lost the Vietnam War

Based on the book They Marched into Sunlight by David Maraniss, this film reveals how two seemingly unconnected events in October 1967 changed the outcome of the Vietnam War.

While a US battalion unintentionally marched into a Viet Cong ambush which killed 61 young soldiers, half a world away furious students at the University of Wisconsin were protesting the presence of Dow Chemical recruiters on campus.

How Vietnam Was Lost is a skillfully crafted documentary that presents the complex issues of that era. The lessons of the Vietnam War are relevant to young Americans of today’s generation as their government still sends young men and women to fight wars in distant countries in the name of freedom and democracy.
