I was inspired to see Rory Kennedy's Last Days In Vietnam (2014) after reading fictionalized accounts of the events in Viet Than Nguyen's Pulitzer Prize winning novel The Sympathizer. I have also read many books and seen many films on the Vietnam War and this is an often overlooked incident in the war. Here Kennedy gives due to the many servicemen and government workers who ignored orders to help save the many Vietnamese people who would have faced punishment form the invading North Vietnamese communist army. One of the more alarming discoveries was that former Deputy Secretary of State under the W. Bush administration, Richard Armitage, was one of the many servicemen who defied orders to save as many Vietnamese as possible. it is incredible to know that a man who had first had knowledge of Vietnam would have been so hawkish about invading another country-Iraq and inflicting the same kind of damage that the US did in Vietnam. I guess history is bound to repeat even is you have firsthand knowledge of such mistakes. There's lots of amazing film and photography that documented the evacuation. The film is well-researched and has a compelling narrative about an under-reported incident from the Vietnam War.
