The Vietnam War (1955-75) was one of the bloodiest wars in recent history, killing more than 2.5 million people.

But it is often remembered as America’s greatest defeat of the war.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the withdrawal of the last American troops from Vietnam on March 29, 1973.

The withdrawal order issued by then-President Richard Nixon was decisive, as the fragile peace process that accompanied it paved the way for victory for the North Vietnamese Army two years later.
