[edit] Information

Vietnam. The Cold War. Desert Storm. The Iraq War. The Afghan War. This weekend, National Geographic Channel gathers 11 active and retired U.S. Army generals for American War Generals, a first-of-its-kind look back at a half century of America's military battles told by the men that led them. American War Generals is an in-depth two-part study of the Generals who have featured in US military planning and fighting of the most recent world conflicts post Vietnam. In a most absorbing way National Geo go directly to the source - the men themselves. Powell. McChrystal. McCaffrey. Petraeus. Clark. For the first time, National Geographic Channel gathers the nation's leading war generals for an unprecedented look at 50 years of military history, from the Vietnam War to America's war on Al-Qaeda. The two-hour special American War Generals reveals never-before-heard stories and insightful opinions from eleven active and retired U.S. Army generals. Their accounts take us through the big changes that have transformed the U.S. military from the first troops to enter Vietnam to the last combat troops to exit Afghanistan, explaining the critical personal experiences that shaped their lives and the way they approached modern warfare. Included in this documentary are interviews with Generals, Powell, McChrystal, Petraeus, Clark, Keane, Casey, McCaffrey, Odierno, Eikenberry and Flynn. Many these men went on to political careers spanning right up to the Trump Presidency. The program tells of how the US withdrawal from Vietnam shaped America's future wars and the generals who fought them. In this 90min special, America's leading combat Generals talk about how they spent their careers training to fight a conventional enemy like the Soviet Union, with tanks, clear frontlines and an enemy in uniform, but then found themselves bogged down fighting guerilla wars in Iraq and Afghanistan after 9/11 the very type of war the Army hoped it would never again fight after Vietnam.
