VIETNAM WAR FILMS

A List of Bad Ass War, Action, Drama and Documentary Movies on NAM. VIETNAM WAR A BLOODY CONFLICT IN SOUTH EAST ASIA (1964-75). IT WAS A SAVAGE WAR FOUGHT IN AN UNEASY COLD WAR TIME. 1960s & 70s WERE TURBULENT TIMES FOR AMERICA. PEOPLE DIDN'T TRUST THEIR LEADERS - ESP PRESIDENT JOHNSON & NIXON. IT WAS A CONFLICT NOBODY IN AMERICA WANTS TO REMEMBER.

A BLOODY PAINFUL WAR FOUGHT IN DENSE THICK THORNY JUNGLES, BUSHES, MOUNTAINS & CU CHI TUNNELS. NOT TO FORGET BOMBING MISSIONS FROM AIR, DOGFIGHTS, AGENT ORANGE, TORTURE CHAMBERS& DEADLY BOOBY TRAPS etc.

THIS FORGOTTEN COLD WAR CONFLICT WAS THE MOST BLOODY GUT WRENCHING HORRIBLE CONFLICT IN HUMAN HISTORY AFTER WWII. KOREA WAS NOTHING WHEN COMPARED. THERE WERE MANY HEROICS BY THE US ARMY & SPECIAL FORCES BUT WAR WAS LOST & WAR EFFORT FORGOTTEN. VIETNAM WAR WAS A LOST CAUSE THAT DENTED AMERICAS IMAGE ABROAD. WAR STORIES UNTOLD TILL TODAY. THE VETS WHO FOUGHT IN NAM HAD HAUNTING NIGHTMARES ABOUT THE WAR IN THE LATER YEARS.

ONLY FEW WHO SERVED THERE BECAME CRAZY. SOME WERE JOBLESS, SOME FOUND IT DIFFICULT TO ADJUST IN SOCIETY, SOME FACED WAR PROTESTS FROM CIVILIANS & HIPPIES ALIKE. MANY SUFFERED FROM PTSD & BLOODY MEMORIES OF WAR IN VIETNAM AS AMERICA LOST THE WAR.

War is hell!
