As someone born in the early 60s I grew up watching the Vietnam War as it was portrayed by our nightly news. With that being my only perspective, I developed a very jaundiced view of the war. That all changed in the early 80s when I heard the late Admiral James Stockdale share his experience as a POW in the Hỏa Lò Prison - sarcastically known to American POWs as the "Hanoi Hilton." There Stockdale was locked in leg irons, routinely tortured, starved, beaten and confined to solitary confinement during his 7+ years as a POW. What I heard that day turned everything I had learned from the American media and people like John Kerry on its head! For the next 35 years I compiled hundreds of books and documentaries on the war and I learned the truth from those who experienced it first-hand - and what I learned was hard to digest! The DVDs I've listed here are DVDs which I feel are factual, do not dishonor our military, and are told from the perspective of those who fought it - our Vietnam Vets!
