Real footage of the early years of the Viet Nam War
7 August 2007 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

Black and white images of Mike Company 3/7, First Mar Div from 1966 when the M-14 was still in use. This is the most realistic film I've ever seen and it is typical of action in the Chu Lai area at that time. That's because it was real and the film crew remained with Mike Company for three months. I saw this when I returned from Viet Nam in 1968 and was surprised to see such reality and never forgot about this film.

Years later I saw it advertised in a magazine and purchased the video but later on loaned it out to a friend and never got it back. If anyone knows where it is possible to purchase it these days please let me know. I've looked but cannot find it anywhere.

Near the end of the film it shows a village being burned and the peasants being forcibly moved from their fields, animals and ancestral burial grounds. This was definitely not the way to win any hearts and minds. I have to wonder if that scene has anything to do with the film being unavailable.
