The Selling of a War February 16, 2010
These documentaries are riveting viewing for 2 reasons: For the extent and level of propaganda put out by the government to sell this war to the American people, and for the other extreme, the brutal footage of the war itself, as in the “To Save a Soldier” segment on disc 4, which shows such incredible heroism among the enlisted men and women. Some are in b&w, some color, and most are in good condition despite their age. There are some clips you will see in more than 1 film, especially the one of Sgt. Bill Belch speaking Vietnamese as he shows villagers how to use a gun. Part spin, part deception, and part truth, this set is a treasure trove for anyone interested in Vietnam, where now the Ford Motor Co. has an assembly plant 35 miles from Hanoi (in a strange twist of fate, Robert McNamara was once a president of Ford).
