Overview

Nothing speaks more profoundly and transparently about the history of a country than its days of war. During this 12 days in Vietnam, we will show you everything there is to know about Vietnamese wars through the chronicle of time and space, from the North to the South. You’ll learn more about how the minuscule and feeble Vietnamese people, though never advocate wars, chose to stand up and fight against two of the most powerful Western countries to take back and maintain peace, making Vietnam a beautiful, peaceful country as it is today.
