Volume 1

The Seeds of Conflict
From the French defeat at Dien Bien Phu to the Gulf of Tonkin incident, this program chronicles America's growing entanglement in Vietnam. Watch as the United States becomes mired in an escalating war for the hearts and minds of the Vietnamese people.

America Takes Charge
The arrival of the first American ground troops is followed by a massive buildup of US forces as the war becomes Americanized. Meet the soldiers and commanders, witness battles, the growing protests at home and the aftermath of the massacre at My Lai.

Courage Under Fire
This program features remarkable combat footage from the first American offensive through the incursion into Cambodia. Witness the valor and bravery of the ground troops, the daring helicopter pilots and the nurses who fought to save the wounded. This is an unforgettable portrait of the soldiers who faced death on a daily basis.

The World of Charlie Company
Join the men of Charlie Company on a mission in Cambodia in 1970. It is a memorable insight into the inner conflict of the soldiers' personal views set against the realities of jungle combat.

Volume 2

The Elusive Enemy
Filmed mostly by the Viet Cong, take an inside look at the weapons and tactics of the elusive and resourceful enemy. You will see how American forces tried to counter their enemy with technology and with "tunnel rats" who hunted the Viet Cong in their own hideouts.

The Tet Offensive
By 1968, American commanders thought they could see the light at the end of the tunnel. Then came the enemies' searing Tet holiday offensive, the coordinated attack on more than one hundred cities throughout South Vietnam. This program captures the ferocity of the desperate struggle in the cities of Vietnam and the stunned reaction in America.

Dateline Saigon
This is a portrait of Saigon, the teeming and sordid wartime capitol of South Vietnam. Witness the fall to the North Vietnamese forces at the end of the war. Revisit Saigon, now renamed to Ho Chi Minh City, ten years after the war and view the changes.

Fire From the Sky
This eye opening program is the story of the men and machines that dominated the air over Southeast Asia for ten years. Watch as the helicopter comes of age as a weapon and shares the sky with the screaming jet fighters. Follow a bombing missino over North Vietnam from the pre-flight briefing all the way to the target.

Volume 3

America Pulls Back
This is the war as it was fought during the last days of United States involvement in Vietnam. It is a shocking story of poor morale, drug use and innocent victims of a brutal war. America struggles for a way out, the so-called "peace with honor."

The End of the Road
From the withdrawal of the last US combat troops and the return of American POWs, to the fall of Saigon, this is the final chapter in the Vietnam War. Walk the Ho Chi Minh trail and witness the final offensive against the South. As Saigon falls, you will watch the last tragic act in a long and divisive war.

The war in Vietnam was one of America's longest and undeniably the most divisive conflict in US history. Go with the veterans and people that lived through the conflict to revisit the places and memories of a distant but unforgotten war.
