Summary "Peace is at hand": While American and Vietnamese soldiers continued to clash in battle, diplomats in Paris argued about making peace. "Homefront USA": Through troubled years of controversy and violence, U.S. casualties mounted, victory remained elusive, and American opinion moved from general approval to general dissatisfaction with the Vietnam War. "The end of the tunnel": On April 29, 1975 - 10 years after America had committed ground combat troops to Vietnam and two years after a cease-fire agreement had failed to stop the fighting - North Vietnamese communists toppled the South Vietnamese government in Saigon in a lightning offensive that startled the world.
