Known as history’s first “living room war”, VIETNAM: THE TEN THOUSAND DAY WAR, written by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and CNN correspondent Peter Arnett and narrated by actor Richard Basehart, is the real story behind the longest, most controversial war in modern history. Presented on 4 DVDs with clarity, authority and insight, this nearly 10-hour documentary is a comprehensive, balanced look at the entire conflict, examining the shifting attitudes of the United States toward Vietnam from 1945, when the battleground was known as French Indochina to 1975, when Saigon fell to the North Vietnamese.
Winner of a National Education Award for Best Documentary, and featuring extensive, rarely-seen archival footage and first-hand interviews with combat veterans, politicians and players from both sides, this award-winning series re-examines, without blame or judgment, the rise and fall of America's 20-year commitment to the war in Vietnam. Forceful and evocative, the documentary revisits the time and place that molded a generation and changed the course of American politics forever.
