This is a long awaited chance to get hold of three classic films about the hidden history of US troops in the Vietnam War.

Sir! No Sir! was made in 2005 and documents the raging discontent in the US army towards the end of the war.

Using archive footage and interviews with ex-soldiers, it records the underground newspapers and subversive coffee houses that sprung up round the US bases.

Winter Soldier, filmed in a hotel in Detroit in 1972, shows the harrowing testimony of US soldiers recently returned from Vietnam. Their raw accounts of the atrocities they committed show the brutality of US imperialism.

FTA (Fuck The Army) follows actors Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland presenting their anti-war show to US troops.

The film was screened for just a week in the US in 1972 before all prints “disappeared”. Thirty seven years later a copy of the film has been found. It is being released on DVD for the first time.
