  • Video: The Anderson Platoon

    As some of you know, this 1966 academy award winning french documentary is probably my most favorite Nam movie ever, and I just found a 10 mins extract on YouTube, showing the battle of Hoa Hoi during Operation IRVING, November 1966. The platoon was part of Company Bravo, 1st Battalion, 12th Cavalry, enjoy :

        Thanks for posting the clip Boonie. It was the first time I have seen it. Would love to watch the whole thing. They did a good job shooting and capturing the the conversations and action. To Boonie - once again

              Just curious, anyone ever found out what became of Lt.Anderson after the service???? I know at the end of the movie, they comment on his commission resignation and 1 year working in Washington D.C. I heard the French came out with a movie about the members of the platoon 25 years later, but have been unable to confirm this.

                    Very good, just day to day with a bunch of Eleven Bush's.
                    A chopper crash that'll get your attention.
