[edit] Information

Among the many problems America faced in Vietnam was how to control the over 3,000 miles of rivers, canals and waterways the enemy used as vital supply and transportation links. The most important weapon in this battle was the gunboat: fiberglass-hulled, fast and maneuverable, they were perfect for patrolling the dangerous waters. The Great Ships tells the story of these unique weapons, from their origins as pleasure craft to their thousands of vital missions in the war. Relive the night-time penetration missions that were their specialty, and hear incredible stories from the men who served aboard them. Tour restored ships for an up-close look at their weapons and construction, and see footage of the boats in action during the war. Featuring a revealing interview with Admiral Jerome King, the commander of all naval forces in Vietnam, this is the definitive story of one of the few success stories from the only conflict America has ever lost.
