A high percentage of men on the front lines in Vietnam were young, poor, undereducated, and black. By most accounts, they had the highest casualties.

Correspondent Wallace Terry, the author of Bloods, the national best-seller on which this film is based, talks with black veterans who fought discrimination in Vietnam and who later confronted disillusionment when they came home.
