During the final days of the Vietnam War, as the North Vietnamese Army closed in on Saigon, the South Vietnamese resistance crumbled.
The U.S. had only a skeleton crew of diplomats and military operatives still in the country.
With the clock ticking, a number of heroic Americans took matters into their own hands, engaging in unsanctioned and often makeshift operations in an effort to save as many South Vietnamese as possible.
Last Days in Vietnam will be available from September 6.  Related Articles:
