    Planning on doing my A level history coursework on Vietnam wondering if anyone can suggest any good Books/Documentaries/Tv shows etc to learn about it from and develop my knowledge and extract sources to use in my essay eventually?

    Thanks in advance,

    We Were Soldiers from 2002 is quite a good film that shows what the war was like in a more balanced view. If you are looking for a documentary then Dear America: Letters Home from Vietnam is quite old but very insightful.
