The Last Stand of South Vietnam

May 25, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

In 1975, South Vietnam’s 18th Infantry Division led an improbable final stand against North Vietnamese forces. Outnumbered 7-1 by their foes, the 18th earned the nickname “The Supermen” as they held the line in the Battle of Xuan Loc for 12 days. Dr. James Willbanks explores the fall of this last defensive line before Saigon, which led to South Vietnam’s surrender nine days later.
