Arrow For the young of today. "For educational purposes, stage 1"....

The 1st below film, is a documentary, filmed by a French journalist, whom had also been in Viet Nam during the 1st Indochina War. It was recommended to me to view, by my closest friend, whom served in A-co of 1/35th Inf Rgt, 4th ID summer of 1968 to summer of 1969. He has it on VHS, and first time I visited him (and his family) he let me see it once we where alone together at home.

THE ANDERSON PLATOON


The below, I have now (finally) on a DVD-box. The episodes are ca 58 minutes long, per episode. I have now also (finally) managed to locate it on youtube, making me able to share it, and to recommend anyone to view it. It is a documentary. If you recongize it, it is no wonder, if you watch "Discovery Channel". It has been aired on that channel, many times, over several years. (There is also a WWII-version aswell, which I also have on DVD-box, and am to try to also locate on youtube. Also that one, has been aired on the Discovery Channel, many times, over several years).

Recommended book "1"....

"Vietnam Order Of Battle" by mr Shelby L. Stanton:
http://books.google.se/books/about/V...QC&redir_esc=y


"Preview" of book, through google's service "google books":

http://books.google.se/books?id=aUg2...page&q&f=false

(Note by A.B:

Observe / note that....

a) not all pages are displayed, as it is a "preview"-function. Amount of pages being displayed, is however yet still high enough to be a reason for using this "preview"-function!

b) loading the amount of pages may take a little while, but being patient is indeed well worth the wait.

End note by A.B).


Same "preview"-function, through "Amazon" service "Look Inside":
