: The first TV series about the Vietnam War, Tour of Duty
focuses on a single platoon of young U.S. Soldiers during their one-year of combat duty in Vietnam during the late 1960s. Terence Knox, Kevin Conroy, Stephen Caffrey, Joshua Maurer, Steve Akahoshi, Tony Becker, Eric Bruskhotter, Stan Foster, Ramon Franco
and Miguel A. Nunez, Jr.
star as the infantrymen who represent diverse racial, cultural and philosophical backgrounds but must ultimately depend on one another to face enemy troops and survive in the hostile Southeast Asian terrain. Full of thrilling combat action, Tour of Duty
also goes deeper to portray the dramatic human side of war and the camaraderie of the men who gave it all for their country.
Second Season: The courageous soldiers of Bravo Company are back for more action-packed fighting and riveting human drama in the second season of the landmark Vietnam series, Tour of Duty. When the platoon is transferred to the Tan Son Nhut Base outside of Saigon, it's a whole new war with different battles and new faces, including some beautiful women. Kim Delaney (TV's CSI: Miami), Dan Gauthier, Richard Brestoff, and Betsy Brantley join series stars Terence Knox, Stephen Caffrey, Tony Becker, Stan Foster and Miguel A. Nunez, Jr. Guest stars include Angela Bassett (How Stella Got Her Groove Back), Michael Madsen (Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2) and Malcolm Jamal-Warner (TV's The Cosby Show). In the second season of Tour of Duty, the fresh-faced recruits are becoming battle-weary fighters whose personal battles are just beginning amidst the daily grind of warfare. Tour of Duty features a new music soundtrack including songs from the Vietnam era!
Third Season: The men face their toughest challenges yet when their platoon (now called Team Viking) is transferred to Camp Barnett to become part of a Special Ops unit. This season delivers extreme combat action and intense human drama focusing on issues unique to the Vietnam era: the devastating effects of chemical warfare, the massacre of Vietnamese civilians, the growing problem of heroin addiction, and the difficulties the soldiers faced returning home to a country bitterly divided by the war. The powerful third season, collected on this five-disc, 21 episode set, is a fitting finale to one of the greatest war dramas ever.
