Excellent Series On The Vietnam War

There is an excellent series of films about the Vietnam War available on Youtube. The first in the series details the beginning of American involvement and the enormous troop buildups in the early years, and has extensive coverage of the battle at Ia Drang (chronicled in Lt. General Hal Moore’s excellent book, We Were Soldiers Once…And Young) and the Battle of Dak To. There are interviews with veterans, spouses and widows, as well as lots of actual films taken during combat. Although each film in the series is fairly long (about an hour and a half each), I highly recommend the series if you want to know more about the history of American involvement in Vietnam.
