Vietnam: The Soldier’s Story
This documentary is part of a superb ABC News TV mini-series – hosted by reporter and veteran Jack Smith – is a set of documentaries, with each episode providing a different segment of the Vietnam war, as seen through the eyes of the veterans of the war. With excellent interviews and rare footage.
This is the episode: “Ambush! The Battle of Ia Drang” and features outstanding interviews with the most well-known participants (host Jack Smith himself was there in the battle as a young man). The team also returns to Vietnam and to the site of the battle as it looked only 30 years after the fight.
This series first aired in October 1998 in six parts. Apologies for any technical issues with the picture or audio – this transfer was taken from an original VHS copy of the program.
This Weekend Watch Party is in honor of Memorial Day.
