Vietnam: the war that divided a country, gave birth to hippies, and started a new music revolution. Despite what people may feel about the war, Vietnam was the starting point for a lot of changes. Gone are the days when Americans used to band together during a time of war. Now there are protestors who believe more in themselves than in following orders.
Given this change of perspective, a Vietnam war film is much different than the patriotic war films of the World War 2 era.
