Superb, dispassionate, and comprehensive
3 May 2008 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

This 12-volume series begins at the end of WWII, and continues up through the fall of Saigon in 1975. It explains the political factors underlying the military strategies on both sides. It also contains a good deal of rare footage taken by Vietnamese guerrillas themselves, providing a fascinating (and often ignored) look into their psychology and daily life.

The graphics are excellent. They are used to explain where and how battles were waged, and the level of detail is quite high. If you want to know more about a particular battle or unit, the material here will make it very easy for you to put search terms together.

This series seems to be used in a lot of classrooms and libraries. It is a very effective educational device. But it's also enthralling for casual watchers. I am not a military history buff. I saw the first episode quite randomly one night on public TV, and couldn't stop watching.

Though it might be tricky to find this series at your local video store, it is very common in libraries, and that might be a good place to start looking for it.
