Zeezok Publishing's Z-Guide to The Green Berets is a great way to incorporate media into your study of the Vietnam War.
Join Colonel Mike Kirby in this action packed and thought provoking film about the Vietnam War. Col. Kirby is a tough-as-nails leader who heads a unit of highly trained handpicked Green Berets through the war torn landscape of Vietnam. They are sent on a top-secret mission to capture an important enemy general: an assignment that proves to be difficult and costly. Along the way they pick up a skeptical reporter who wants to see the real side of war and accompanies them to the battlefield. None of their training could have adequately prepared them for what they are about to face.
