Summary
A collection of 47 films produced between 1964 and 1977. In addition to focusing on the operations of the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines, some documentaries focus on such topics as the Montagnard tribesmen, the role of American surgeons in civilian South Vietnam, a history of the first Army airborne division from WWII through Vietnam, the role of special U.S. forces who served as instructors for Vietnamese troops, a propaganda newsreel produced by South Vietnam, and a documentary about the techniques used on POWs to obtain information, the history of the Medal of Honor, the role of chaplains, and American culture and its mindset at the time. Features on Disc 3 include abridged recordings of Martin Luther King Jr.'s April 4, 1967 speech at Riverside Church in New York City, Beyond Vietnam: a time to break silence and Lyndon B. Johnson's March 31, 1968 speech in which he announces he will not seek re-election as president of the United States
