This feature-length documentary focuses on the efforts by troops in the U.S. military during the Vietnam War to oppose the war effort by peaceful demonstration and subversion. It speaks mainly to veterans, but serves as a ready reminder to civilians that soldiers may oppose war as stridently as any civilian, and at greater personal peril. Written by

i had the opportunity to see this film in advance to write a term paper, it uses good evidence and is well done. if you want further information look up "Soldiers in Revolt" by David Courtright from Haymarket Books, and "The American War: Vietnam 1960-1975" by Johnathan Neale from Bookmarks. both of these books are invaluable resources and are well researched, Neale is based in large part from Courtright, but is a good summary of the situation in Vietnam throughout the French period, and into the American war, and it ends with a look at Vietnam today. Courtright is an in-depth look into the GI revolts, and the anti-war movement surrounding it.
The film Sir No Sir builds on these books and gives a compelling argument concerning the end of the Vietnam War.
