Part 2 of 4. Dr. Shaun Baker and Senior Fellow Alvin Townley talk about the use of the US POWs as propaganda tools during the Vietnam conflict.
What did the North Vietnamese try to accomplish, and how did they go about it? The propaganda/media war, how it had worked in the 1st Indochina War with France, and how they used the same strategy during the US War. How the US government responded during the Johnson administration and then the Nixon administration. Finally, how the responses of the POWs and their wives contrasted and compared.
