Description
Known as history's first 'living room war,' the Vietnam conflict is presented here with clarity, authority and insight. Written by Pulitzer Prize winner Peter Arnett and narrated by Richard Basehart, it's seen through the eyes of key policymakers and fighting soldiers. The interviews, film clips, and commentary put this "police action" into an illuminating perspective. America in Vietnam gives an overall perspective of the shifting attitudes of the United States towards Vietnam, from their early liason to the ultimate fall of Saigon. Dien Bien Phu examines the French surrender at this crucial battle, and how it triggered 20 years of direct American involvement in Vietnam.

Known as history's first "living room war," the Vietnam conflict is presented here with clarity, authority and insight. Written by Pulitzer Prize winner Peter Arnett and narrated by Richard Basehart, it's seen throught the eyes of key policymakers and fighting soldiers. The interviews, film clips, and commentary put this "police action" into an illuminating perspective. Peace is a history of the search for peace throughout the war. The ultimate ceasefire is seen by the U.S. as "peace with honor" and by Saigon as a sellout. Surrender examines the final offensive in 1975, two years after America's withdrawal. The Unsung Soldiers views the silent homecoming of the veterans. The postwar world is unrewarding and sometimes hostile towards the men who fought in America's first "defeat."

WHY VIETNAM? asks the important and crucial question: why did the United States send our young men to fight and suffer in Vietnam? This program answers this question through a historical look at the French, United States, and other countries occupation of Vietnam. Also it examines the United States' involvement as a patriotic act to protect freedom - something we must fight for at any cost. Also in KNOW YOUR ENEMY - THE VIET CONG, the frightening truth of the Viet Cong's internal operations are exposed. This documentary explores who are enemy really was - the real Viet Cong. It's a revealing probeof their deceptive and under-handed methods, from their guerrilla fighting tactics to their destructive raiding missions, and how they fought an unfair war at the cost of their own civilians. Brigadier General Stanley M. Ulanoff is a noted military historian who has received numerous honors and commedations from both the U.S. and French governments. During World War II he served with the Counterintelligence Corps in Europe.

Description
Were the 58,132 Americans killed in the Vietnam War 'sent to die on a fool's errand with no purpose? Or were they engaged in a noble cause to halt the spread of communism? Why did we lose this war, despite our overwhelming military superiority? Was it because our own media undermined the will of the American people to fight to win? These two important questions are raised by Charlton Heston in TELEVISION'S VIETNAM, a two-part documentary in which military experts, scholars, journalists, and Vietnamese exiles contrast what actually happened in Vietnam with widespread myths and misunderstandings. Produced in response to angry protests from Vietnam veterans and Vietnam exiles about Public Broadcasting's $5.6 million series, VIETNAM: A TELEVISION HISTORY, Accuracy in Media's TELEVISION'S VIETNAM has made television history. Part one, THE REAL STORY, is the first and only documentary ever aired by a network devoted to exposing errors in a previously aired documentary series. It presents evidence showing VIETNAM: A TELEVISION HISTORY had unjustly maligned American fighting men, our Vietnamese allies, our Vietnam veterans, and had falsely glorified our enemy. Part Two, THE IMPACT OF THE MEDIA, shows that misleading reporting from Vietnam contributed significantly to the loss of will to do what was necessary to keep South Vietnam from falling to the Communists. Both stories have been highly praised by Vietnam veterans and Vietnamese exiles for setting the record straight and explaining why our "noble cause" ended in tragedy. President Ronald Reagan praised them as films that "all Americans should see."
