Crisis and armed conflict, from Korea to the Persian Gulf

From bloody but undeclared wars to swift, information-driven conflicts, the very nature of warfare changed during the last century. America’s military changed, too, with women, elite special forces, and high-tech weaponry playing larger roles. Join Mike Wallace as he examines pivotal clashes in recent history, from Korea to Somalia. See on-the-spot dispatches from the front lines, as reported by legendary correspondents such as Edward R. Murrow, Walter Cronkite, and Morley Safer. Hear expert analysis from journalists, military leaders, and historians--including David Halberstam, Robert S. McNamara, and Sen. John McCain--as well as personal testimonies from veterans who fought on the ground, over the sea, and in the air.

These 10 thought-provoking episodes show 20th-century conflicts as they happened--and unflinchingly explore the lessons learned in their aftermath.

Best known as a correspondent for the groundbreaking CBS newsmagazine 60 Minutes, journalist Mike Wallace has won over 20 Emmys®, three Peabodys, and many other awards in his distinguished career spanning more than five decades.

Korea, Vietnam through to the Gulf War, astonishing film footage, educational, nostalgic to those who lived it, lessons for the future. 10, 47-minute episodes rich with firefight footage, not for the squeamish. A documentary on modern warfare, the good, the bad and the ugly. Propaganda revealed along with leadership decisions on both the pos. and neg. sides. 20 Emmy-winner Mike Wallace is no novice to covering US war and here is a supreme example of his journalistic ability. Reporters such as Murrow, Cronkite, Safer & others are also brought back to life in recovered news-footage. See John McCain as a tortured, wounded, captured pilot,+ MacArthur and McNamara in action.

A worthy DVD set for any history, war historian, US history, or military buff. A must see for anyone born in the 20th century later half. Vets will remember much more than presented here. Scenes are not all heroic winning. Some are. Women in war is covered as well.

SUBTITLES provided. Bonus of 9 text military leader bios.
Episode summaries:
1 VIETNAM: HOW WE WENT TO WAR--Pulitzer David Halberstam called Vietnam "the making of a quagmire." Nam was America's most unpopular war. Un-winnable guerrilla war leaving 300,000 wounded, 58,000 dead. History of Pres. Truman through Johnson. Pres. Johnson's '65 escalation went from 20000 to 190000 then on to a 543,000 peak.

2 VIETNAM: A SOLDIER'S DIARY--"Grunts" fought "Charlie" in "Nam". Shows live firefights, survivor interviews, and casualties. "68 Tet suggests Vietnam would be lost. Home population ready to leave. Pres. Johnson refuses another term. Even troops rebel--on camera. '73 end with no hero welcome.

3 VIETNAM DILEMMA: TET AND THE ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT--America won military advantage of the Tet Offensive but lost morale.

I chose this rating because I was familiar with the value Mike Wallace places on the truth whether the viewer will like it or not. This results in wildly different immediate responses, but he usually wins in the long haul. I loved every minute of this and am recommending it to any thinking adult who can understand English.
