To get a good impression of the USA war crime in the Vietnam war you have to see the Dutch documentary.

I visited this site in 1994, and was taken in by it. The photos displayed, of helicopters landing, the devastation of the killings there, the fascinating statuary, all set in the beautiful jungle atmosphere combine to take older Americans right back to the late 60's...More

Stopping at the massacre site wasn't originally in our plans, but our guide added it since we stayed quite near the night before. I'm very glad he did. The site is an emotionally heartbreaking, and as an American, ashamedful experience. Over 500 villagers were murdered...More
