This short (11 min.) film is of a Viet Cong ambush of American soldiers during the Vietnam War is remarkable for a number of reasons. 1st, that it was caught on camera at all. 2nd, because many of the US soldiers who survived are interviewed, but thirdly because the commander of the Viet Cong soldiers who attacked them is also interviewed. The other thing that comes out of this footage is how terrifying and difficult it must have been to fight the Viet Cong in their own jungle.
