It has been over 25 years since the Americans left Vietnam, their most ignominious defeat ever. From The Deer Hunter to Platoon, the Vietnam cycle of films that America has been producing since the 1970s has had an impact on audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.
This Pocket Essential offers an overview of the genre, including its many sub-genres - the training film Full Metal Jacket, the anti-war diatribe Platoon, the Vietnam Vet saga Rambo: First Blood, and the surreal Apocalypse Now. Loved by audiences, debated over by critics, and frequently used on film studies and history courses, the Vietnam War film has a wide appeal.
