The Vietnam War was one of the worst horrors of the second half of the 20th century and the causes behind it continue to baffle people to this day. How did it start? What were the justifications for America’s involvement in Nam? Could it have been avoided altogether? Now in this stunning collection, see the war as it was – warts and all. Go back to the early days of French colonialism in Southeast Asia and get an understanding of the underlying circumstances that became the breeding ground for the war; witness the horror of jungle warfare and see what life was like for the brave soldiers who put it all on the line; and behold the stunning battles, bombs and explosions that bring the war home in living color. Heartbreaking images of entire villages torn to the ground and motherless children explore the human calamity of the war and the war’s eventual end will leave you wondering what price was paid for freedom and was it all worth it?

While the narration is fairly good, this was virtually unwatchable. Its only usefulness lies in the narrator's information, but the visual effects used are so distracting, and oddly placed, that even that loses its value. This very easily could have been a one star review if not for the true, and accurate information read by the narrator.
Suggested Uses/Reasons to Watch?
~ One could play it in the background while doing work, or chores.
~ Someone could put it on if they are the type of person that likes to have a TV or radio on while falling asleep.
~ For pure research purposes due to the fairly detailed and accurate information given.
SPOILER ALERT: I would estimate that at least 70% of the content of this "Movie" are visual effects that would look great on a mid 90's early 2000's computer screensaver.
Would I watch this again?
No, I could barely even get through it as it is.
I believe one other reviewer said it correctly, that any 3+ star reviews are for some other documentary film. Either that, or the good reviews were written by "Serial Reviewers" who didn't bother to even watch this odd "documentary."
Ok after watching both discs I have changed my review. The first 3 episodes were terrible, once you get past them the rest are very good. Good stories, much better script and way better acting. Now I would recommend this film.
