"Contains unedited footage direct from the National Archives"--Container.
"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.
