America’s first televised war comes starkly and comprehensively alive in this sweeping documentary collection. The best material from the archives of THE HISTORY CHANNEL and CBS News. 7 complete documentaries offers rare insight into critical elements of the Vietnam War. Contemporary footage and commentary capture the Vietnam experience as it happened. At a total cost of more than 3.1 million lives, the Vietnam conflict is, to date, America’s longest and most controversial war. It also marked the first time TV journalists ventured to the frontlines to bring the spectacle of combat into American living rooms. Across the nation, Americans watched, captivated by the surprise Tet Offensive and the slow-motion tragedy of the 77-day Battle of Khe Sanh, and inspired by the courage and skill of American soldiers at decisive engagements like Ia Drang Valley, Con Thien, and Dak To. This special THE HISTORY CHANNEL collection profiles the decision-makers of the Vietnam War and chronicles each key event, from the advisors’ arrival in 1959 to the airlift from the roof of the American Embassy in 1975. Archival footage and interviews with historians and veterans reveal the military and political strategies in play, and CBS News archives take viewers to the frontlines to witness the daily struggles of American servicemen and women. Combining interviews with Vietnam veterans and the actual footage from CBS News coverage, the viewer is given a glimpse into the war that has rarely been seen. Battle stories are heart breaking enough in the words of the veterans, but coupled with the news footage and reporting (for the first time from the front lines,) it becomes a greater more personal grief.
