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,
Jake

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.
