Editorial Reviews

WHY VIETNAM This program explains the "where and whys" for an American public desperate to understand the conflict in Vietnam and their participation in it. It places the war within the other great battles in history, what the catalysts were and how America became involved and what they hoped to accomplish.PROGRESS TO PEACE Narrated by Raymond Burr, this documentary analyses the withdrawal of US troops from Vietnam and the slow but vital process of the South Vietnamese taking control of their country. Self-government, self-defense and self-development are the keys points promoted as a nation attempts to dust off the destruction of war.THE UNIQUE WAR The Vietnam War provided US troops with a battle zone unfamiliar for many reasons. The lack of a defined front line, the jungle conditions and an enemy proficient in guerrilla warfare were new foes which had to be overcome in order to survive. There were also non-military differences than those conditions experienced in previous wars, as US troops embarked on a large scale operation to support the South Vietnamese people and an all encompassing civil action plan.

compared to more recent documentaries, this mentions little the history of Vietnam, only it's liberation from being a French colony. Heavy handed information on South Vietnam, resources, agriculture, no mention of those in the north, thus this is more propaganda for the Johnson era America. Other than seeing caveats of footage, like of an American advisor speaking in Vietnamese, it is not packed with vital information of the time.

Well presented propaganda documentary by the Defense Department. A simple message that uses the analogies of Hitler and Nazism, Mussolini and Fascists and the Communist presence in Korea as the reason for intervention. Original footage with an explanation for US involvement in Vietnam. In retrospect, it isn't difficult to review the misleading information. It does present a fairly accurate description of others that had tried to negotiate a peaceful solution. It is more than unfortunate that the US chose to commit troops without the presence of a multilateral military force. View this for no other reason than to try to understand how the US became involved in such a tragic and deadly confrontation. For those who served 'in country' during the Vietnam war, perhaps this 'justification' offers no 'justice' for what was required and endured!
