Battlefield Vietnam: From Dien Bien Phu To Peace With Honor (Blu-ray)

About this item

"Battlefield Vietnam: From Dien Bien Phu To Peace With Honor" focuses on the history of America's involvement in Indochina, from the defeat of the French at Dien Bien Phu to the reunification of Vietnam after the last American troops left Saigon, with footage from Vietnamese, Chinese and French combat photographers rarely seen in the West. This outstanding Blu-Ray disc, re-mastered in full 1080 HD is from the landmark televsion documentary series "Battlefield", first aired in England on the BBC and later on PBS. Now for the first time TMG and NBC Universal bring you these detailed accounts of the pivotal battles of the Vietnam War. Each episode covers one great battle, featuring portraits of the leaders and commanders, explanations of weapons and tactics, a review of the political and military situation leading up to the battle, troop deployment, and the story of the battle itself. "Dien Bien Phu - The Legacy": In 1953 the French and Viet Minh forces had been at war for seven years. The climatic encounter of the war occurred at Dien Bien Phu, a small hamlet in northwestern Vietnam, in a battle that neither side could afford to lose. "The Undeclared War & Search and Destroy": After the departure of the French, America slowly began to send advisors to South Vietnam to counter the activities of the Viet Minh and the threat of invasion from the North. By 1965, Ho Chi Minh's communist revolution was on the verge of complete victory. Desperate to stem the Communist tide, the United States made the fateful decision to send combat troops to Vietnam. "Air War Vietnam & Rolling Thunder": From early 1963 until the end of 1973 the United States mounted an aggressive bombing campaign against North Vietnam. At first restricted to targets south of the 20th Parallel, the air-war fighting in the south escalated, culminating in the so-called Christmas bombings of Hanoi and Haiphong in December 1973. "Peace with Honor": The Paris Peace Accord finally brought an end to the Vietnam War, and the last U.S. soldiers left Vietnam on March 29, 1973. Two years later, Saigon fell to the North Vietnamese. Vietnam was re-united.

Rare Archival Footage from Vaults Around the World.
