5.0 out of 5 stars Way better than expected 20 May 2013
By Kanenberg - Published on Amazon.com

Military history buffs like myself will really like this DVD about the Vietnam War. I learned things I didn't know about the War that surprised me. With Charlton Heston narrating I expected a 'hawk version' of events as in "We(the US)didn't lose the War we just weren't allowed to win it" which may very well be true. But instead, the documentary was very well balanced in its presentation of both sides of the war and it showed the ignorance and arrogance of the Gov'ts on both sides of the conflict. The DVD has no CC/subtitles but one great thing about 'Chuck Heston', he is an awesome speaker on film! I highly recommend this DVD and the other ones in the Secrets of War series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the price though not so objective as claimed 7 Aug 2013
By R. SELIG - Published on Amazon.com

These chapters are dependent on few and somewhat biased sources though the bias is, at least, bilateral since the PAVN veterans all mouth the party line as to how heroic were the North Vietnamese in standing up to and ultimately defeating the all-powerful Americans. In those interviews no mention is made of the massive Soviet and Chinese aid North Vietnam received.

Unfortunately, the notion promoted by the US military to this day that in Vietnam the Americans scored all those "battlefield victories" goes unchallenged here. In truth the whole idea of what a victory is, even what constitutes a "battle", had to be re-thought in that conflict.

There also are some outright distortions, such as the reason behind Operation Linebackers I and II--the notorious "Christmas Bombing" of Hanoi. It was not Hanoi's intransigence that caused the Paris peace talks to stall. The problem was the administration in Saigon--our own side, that is--that showed a sudden and very ill-timed independence and balked at signing the accords, knowing it had no popular support in the South.

For sheer quantity of material this disc is worth the $7,00 price and more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well done, better than a typical war movie 17 July 2013

I had seen other videos on the war and they were mostly standard videos from the American perspective with the addition of a few personal stories from troops. This has a section on Ho's life and you get a very interesting story from his side too.

3.0 out of 5 stars You can get all 65 Episodes For a Little More 1 Sep 2013
By Rude Boy 1979 - Published on Amazon.com
Just a heads up, you can get the complete run of this show (65 episodes covering a lot more then just Vietnam) for about twice the price of this 5 episode set.

5.0 out of 5 stars good history 13 May 2014
By it - Published on Amazon.com

This is a very true presentation of the war. One thing I learned from it was that the Vietnamese approached President Wilson for help in getting the French out of their country. He refused. The Vietnamese had no other choice but to ask Russia for help.
