Event Description

The conflict in the 1960s and 70s is commonly seen as an exclusively American debacle. And yet its roots lie in 19th-century European colonialism, and had its course altered by World War II all before the Americans even thought of sending troops into Vietnam.

The war would change America forever both in terms of its military and its society as a whole. Its legacy is still killing Vietnamese people 50 years later.

Learn more about this "war with no front lines" (General William C. Westmoreland) with popular Mirthy historian Jem Duducu.

  • Duration: 60 mins x 2

Meet the Host, Jem

Jem is a published historian and historical fiction writer. He writes and speaks about a broad range of subjects covering different areas and continents. His greatest joy is uncovering little-known fascinating facts and sharing them with an audience.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!

More Information

What if I can’t make the event?

If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.

Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?

Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy your Mirthy event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.

How do I watch the live event?

Mirthy events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
