Pete Peterson: Assignment Hanoi

Pete Peterson: Assignment Hanoi is the companion site for the PBS special of the same name airing on Tuesday, September 7. Peterson, a former P.O.W, has been the United States ambassador to Vietnam since 1997, the first such ambassador in 27 years. The site documents Peterson's past in Vietnam as a soldier and then prisoner of war, and his current mission to bring about reconciliation between the two countries. Significant information is provided about Vietnam's recent history, current political and cultural conditions, and diplomatic relations with the United States. A Teacher's Notebook offers useful study plans for the classroom, a Webliography and bibliography for further study, interviews, writing assignments, and more.
