The DVD Jacket Description for this Ken Burns episode of The Vietnam War reads:

South Vietnamese forces fighting on their own in Laos suffer a terrible defeat. Massive U.S. air power makes the difference in halting an unprecedented North Vietnamese offensive. After being re-elected in a landslide, Nixon announces Hanoi has agreed to a peace deal. American prisoners of war will finally come home – to a bitterly divided country.

Highlights include the trial of William Calley, John Kerry's testimony to the Senate, the Pulitzer prize winning photo of Kim Phuc (the napalm girl), the Pentagon Papers, Watergate and the return of America's POWs
