Some personal accounts of serving in Vietnam filmed in 8 mm and posted on YouTube:

It's interesting to compare them with the official and more dramatized presentations of the war like "The Fight for LZ X-Ray"

And last but not least is some amazing 8 mm footage of a helicopter assault done exactly as the famous scene in the movie Apocalypse Now, only this is for real...The absurd thing is the poster has added the same music that was used in Coppola's film ("Ride of the valkyries" by Richard Wagner) - talk about reality vs. fiction...
