Abstract:

"Direct from the National Archives, these films were selected for their historical significance: uncut and uncensored. It was a conflict that spanned five presidencies, and a war that incited numerous riots and protests and instituted a draft that will never be forgotten. Vietnam hosted the most monumental battle between communism and democracy, the Vietnam War. Remember the heroism and bravery of those that risked their lives in the dense jungles and marshes in this exclusive DVD collection from the National Archives"--Container.

The hidden war in Vietnam: "Still dealing with the aftermath of McCarthyism, anti-communist sentiments in the U.S. ran deep. This documentary details how the U.S. attempted to contain the spread of communism." Operation Montagnard: "Documents the Montagnard, a rugged tribe of Vietnam, and their contribution to the war against the Viet Cong." Why Viet-nam: "Featuring Secretary of State Dean Rusk and Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, this documentary depicts the bombings of the U.S. Embassy and the intense fighting to combat the Viet Cong." Night of the dragon: "Offers a comprehensive look at the history, culture, and economy of Vietnam"--Container.
