55 Days: The Fall of Saigon (2010)

I remember my mom crying when we were watching the helicopters take the last of the diplomats out of the embassy. Under the terms of the accords, all American combat troops were withdrawn by 29 March 1973. Limited fighting continued, before North Vietnam captured the province of Phuoc Long in December 1974 and started a full-scale offensive, culminating in the Fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975.
