I don't know if anyone saw The Vietnam War on the History Channel last night, I have seen a few different ones but I have to say I learnt a lot about the lead up to the war in this one. Very informative! Some footage I haven't seen before too. Was the first episode last night . If you are in any way interested in this conflict I think is worth a look!
I thought it was well done too. Good coverage from the Viet Minh side and the film footage, a lot of which was new was well placed, unlike others when the film used is clearly out of place with the commentary.
Perhaps a separate episode on Dien Bin Phu to follow?
Not sure though that the pronunciation of Giap was right though nor did they include that the Viet Minh guns used at DBP were Us captured by the Chinese in the Korean war.
