Where to obtain
6 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this when it came out in 1955. I would like to obtain it in DVD or VHS format. Where can I get this done? I think that it would help the American viewing public to understand we got involved in Vietnam. The problem was that the French were surrounded in Dien Bien Phu and were expecting American air strikes to help them get out of being surrounded by the Vietminh. The air support never came and the French were over run. The United States filled the vacuum left by the French in order to contain communism.

President Eisenhower started by sending about fifteen American servicemen as advisers in the late 1950s.

President Kennedy increased the complement of American servicemen to 15, 000 men and President Johnson up the ante to 500,000.
