    If you Goggle it, you can watch it online, and at some point I probably will.
    Read the book "We Were Soldiers Once.....and Young". Written by LT.Gen. Harold G. Moore(retired) and reporter Joseph L. Calloway, both experienced the battle first hand. The movie sucked compared to the book.The following is a review of the book. I have no ideal who wrote the review.
    We Were Soldiers Once.....and Young

    First, Hal Moore is one of my personal heros. I would follow him into combat anytime. His book is a true accounting of America's first "official" engagement of the Vietnam Conflict (War). Against a far superior force in numbers, Col. Moore's 1/7th Cav (Airmobile) Battalion outlasted the enemy and proved that the use of helicopters in close air support, resupply, and Dustoff was certainly a brilliant strategy. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a factual accounting of verious missions in early Vietnam To Col. Moore, Garry Owen Sir!.

    Keep in mind that I was an aviation metalsmith out in the Gulf of Tonkin on a aircraft carrier.

    I've watched the first 2 episodes, I'm impressed. Lots of information that gives perspective on why things happened the why they did.
