    I am Vietnamese.Thank for your sharing. I am very proud of our victory in the war. However, I know that the war robbed the right to live of Vietnamese and American people. No happiness is completed in war for both sides.

    Thank you for sending me emails and links to your English lessons/videos. Honestly, I have been too busy at work and at home, so I haven’t had watching the videos and learned English for a long time. However, when I was checking mails I marked your email about Vietnam war with red flag to follow up. Do you know why? The answer is I am from Vietnam and I am curious about the lesson made by foreigners about Vietnam war. It is objective? It is true? And now I must to say:” thank you very much for your time, for your great spirit to gather war photos for making valuable videos as a part of your teaching”. I have just read all comments above. Thank you all for your good comments and your interest in Vietnam war. I hate war. My aunt had been waiting for her husband – a soldier for 16 years. He had returned from the war. But it was a rare luck. In Vietnam war many children lost their parents, many women lost their beloved husbands, brothers, fathers, children… Today when my children watching terrible wars around the world, they always ask me ” why people from some countries come to other countries and bomb, kill civilian people?”. I love peace and happy to live in peace. I pray for people suffering any kind of war in the world.

    Thank you again. Wishing you a good health and fullness of energy to make so many great lessons.

  22. Montaser says:

    Its very bad history for leaders of USA , A lot of people were died from both sites as a result of wrong decision , Seems no body learned from the past so same story repeated again in Iraq with millions of victims just to gain oil which is exist in gulf area

  23. huyennguyen says:

    yes, it had been a very tired and also very, very sad war because many Vietnamese people had laid down for our freedom today.
    hope that from now on, no one has to die due to standing up for their own freedom; because each person has his/ her own right to live in peace and happiness when he/she was born.

    Thanks a lot for this movie!
    I come from Vietnam, so I feel very sad when thinking about the war (not just in Vietnam, but also anywhere in the world). Fortunately, the relationship between Vietnam and the United States was much more better than that before. Anyway, the film is an very usefulEnglish practice!

  27. josé luiz says:

    it’s very sad, but it’s a excellent learning.

    thank you by documentary

    A HAG!

  28. leandra says:

    This video is full of sadness. I think that all wars take destruction, death, violence and there isn’t a good reason to justify the act of war.I believe that every war is in the name of money, of business.When the politicals say that the war is in the name of civilization, this is a lie for masking the true reason of war: money.
