Vietnam in HD DVD

SKU ID #450860
$14.98
Two years after setting the new standard in war combat documentaries with its Emmy-winning masterpiece WWII in HD, History shifts its focus to a different generation and to one of the most controversial wars in American history. Vietnam In HD, an epic six-hour miniseries, captures the sights, the sounds and the stories of the Vietnam War through inmate and revealing interviews with 13 people who experienced the war first-hand. Rarely seen footage, detailing critical turning points in the Vietnam War, is combined with powerful storytelling to create an immersive experience. The perspective separates, as never before, the war from the warriors. Vietnam in HD is narrated by Emmy-nominated actor Michael C. Hall and features some of Hollywood's top talent who narrate the wartime accounts.

    Would be a good learning tool for middle school and high school students. Up close and personal depiction of the horrors of war, and the courage of young men and women at war.

                      Had to return item four times, I can get the second disc to run but only when I play with it via the DVD player, sometimes it does not work, you have lost me as a customer. Your service personnel on the phone really do not care and just process returns, they do not help very much (test DVD prior to shipment).
