They Didn't Know the Half of It 30 Jun. 2002
By tamiii - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
If by chance you've stumbled upon this documentary, count yourself lucky. This film helped change a nation without the benefit of the subsequently revealed Pentagon Papers or now known confirming documents. In retrospect it seems a cautious, subtle condemnation of the war. Nevertheless, the film remains important in various ways: cameras on location could accidentally reveal an unintended story; the truth could be discovered despite secrecy; and, careful storytelling can change the opinion of a nation.

Riveting 14 Jan. 2004
By RT Watson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This may well be one of the finest documentaries ever made. Some of it is luck in that the time in which it was made allowed Antonio to speak with US polititions from a (sadly) bygone era and, yes, both sides of the aisle were interviewed. It could reasonably be viewed as well inside the anti-Vietnam War camp, as a warning for any of you who supported the war. But, in fairness, it seems to be more of a precocious examination of how and why the US lost (this is made before the Tet Offensive). I wouldn't dismiss it on ideological grounds.

Comparisons between Then and Now 10 Jan. 2007
By John C. Asbury - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This film is very interesting in how it depicts the story of the Vietnam War. To see the politicians of the that time make the same sorts of arguments that today's politicos make, in regards to the justification of the Iraq war, is stunning. It is like the same reasoning and purposes that they say we now need to be in the Middle East, they all said about Southeast Asia. Just insert the word Terrorism for Communism as we do it all over again. "As the War Machine keeps turning..." I am glad I purchased this film.

Thirty Years' Time . . . . 1 May 2005
By W. GRUENDLER I I - Published on Amazon.com
. . . has not diminished the power of this documentary. I sought it out in the used market and found it at last. Get a copy for your Viet Nam era collection and stack it with "The Anderson Platoon", "Medium Cool", "Getting Straight", "Alice's Restaurant", "The Green Berets", and others made during, not after, that conflict.

I watched it again today - the anniversary of the reunification of Viet Nam - with my two youngest sons who are interested in that war, having played virtual versions of it in their video worlds.

Seems the conflicting ideologies were all given pretty fair treatment to me. See the internet movie data base (imdb) for the strange bedfellows cast of original characters, including General Curtis "bomb them back into the stone age" LeMay to Daniel "Brother of Philip" Berrigan.... Original and amazing combat footage supplied by North Viet Nam includes the 1954 fall of Dien Bien Phu. There is some horrifying footage of the self-immolation of Thich Quang Duc, and revealing, candid interviews with American enlisted and officers in the field. In short, if you are at all interested in the Viet Nam War and have read or are planning to read Christan Appy's "Patriots", be sure to buy this video for yourself and your family and friends. I am a Viet Nam combat infantry veteran.

Riveting account of USA's arrogance 14 Sept. 2009
By Bob Hoskins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Another reviewer mentioned similarities between the run up and US involvement in Vietnam and the run up and involvement in Iraq. I think he nailed it.

The USA for some reason holds itself accountable to no one and, should it seek to go to war, it will create false truths to do so.

The second Gulf of Tonkin incident which effectively got the USA into the war is commented on by Naval servicemen of the time. Their collective comment is one of fabrication. Washington pressured and pressured for a "positive attack" that they eventually got despite all the evidence to the contrary.

Two lone voices from the Senate rang out in dissent of the "Gulf of Tonkin resolution" which basically gave the President (then Johnson) unrestrained power to wage war without a declaration of war.

Further into the documentary we see a "rally" reminiscent of Nazi Germany taking place. Young boys marching with flags on poles, Steel helmeted soldiers and hateful rhetoric by politicians and high ranking Armed forces officials that make your soul quiver.

The arrogance of these people as they talk about "dead China men, Asians etc" as being animals and not caring about life makes you angry and just shocked at the zero value placed on the Vietnamese by the Americans.

For 1968 this documentary dares to go against the popular support for the war by explaining the history of Vietnam and the descent by USA into a war that could never be won.
It's fascinating, sad, emotional and you are left with a "Wow, I'm almost ashamed to be part of this" feeling.

Iraq is today's Vietnam without the coverage. A needless waste of life in a war where neither the Vietnamese nor the Iraqi's ever threatened the United States.

This documentary for me, is a study in "The arrogance of Power".
