Dear CW:

We have just purchased the DVD set for the above title. When I was
cataloging it and comparing it to our videotape copy, I noticed some
parts appear to be missing.

Content note for the videos:
Vol. 1., Episode 1. : Roots of war ; Episode 2. :* The First Vietnam
War, 1946-1954 *-- Vol. 2., Episode 3. : America's Mandarin, 1954-1963 ;
Episode 4. : LBJ goes to war, 1964-1965 -- Vol. 3., Episode 5. : America
takes charge, 1965-1967 ; Episode 6. : With America's enemy, 1954-1967
-- Vol. 4., Episode 7. : Tet, 1968 ; Episode 8. : Vietnamizing the war,
1969-1973 ; Vol. 5., Episode 9. : Cambodia and Laos ; Episode 10. :
Peace is at hand, 1968-1973 -- Vol. 6., Episode 11. : Homefront USA ;
Episode 12. : The End of the tunnel, 1973-1975 -- Vol. 7., Episode 13. :
*Legacies*.

Content note for the DVD:
disc 1. Roots of a war ; America's Mandarin, 1954-1963 -- disc 2. LBJ
goes to war, 1964-1965 ; America takes charge, 1965-1967 ; America's
enemy, 1954-1967 -- disc 3. Tet 1968 ; Vietnamizing the war, 1968-1973 ;
Cambodia and Laos -- disc 4. "Peace is at hand," 1968-1973 ; Homefront
USA ; The end of the tunnel, 1973-1975.

Also, the original videotape set runs 13 hours and the DVD set runs 11
hours. Does anyone know why the sets do not match?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Sincerely,
