Synopsis:
They were crack troops skilled in the techniques of unconditional warfare, the soldiers of the Special Forces – and the focus of Hollywood's first feature film about the 'Vietnam War: The Green Berets'. John Wayne stars in and co-directs this red-white-and-blue depiction of America's Vietnam effort. Wayne wrote to President Lyndon Johnson to request military assistance for the film – and got more than enough firepower to create and impressive spectacle. Its soldiers fit the tried-and-true mould of earlier Wayne war classics like 'Back To Bataan' and 'Sands of Iwo Jima'. Their heroics are timeless.

hawkish view - The Green Berets review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
09/08/2007

Between 1955 and 1975 - from the beginning of American direct involvement in Vietnam to their withdrawal from Saigon – not many films were made by Hollywood relating to the Vietnam War. The only big-budget film during this period was The Green Berets (John Wayne, 1968), which took a hawkish view of the war and included elements of propaganda. This shows the continued support for the battle against communism and the military promises of victory in 1968.
