The first television series to dramatise the events of the Vietnamese War, Tour Of Duty, released on DVD by Fabulous Films on 21st November 2011, was a groundbreaking show that combined breathtaking action with thought-provoking drama while addressing the human elements of the conflict, from issues of racism and culture to suicide, drug abuse, the civilian casualties and the alienation of those soldiers who made it home alive.

Now, Tour Of Duty comes to UK DVD in its original broadcast format, for the first time ever in any worldwide territory, including the full original soundtrack of classic music tracks - including the main title track, The Rolling Stones' Paint It Black - that importantly set the tone and mood of the series and helped make it so popular with viewers.

Tour Of Duty - The Complete First Season features all 21 one-hour episodes of the show's debut series collected over five discs.

The plotline revolves around a single platoon of young US soldiers during their one-year tour of combat duty in Vietnam during the late 1960s. Miles from home in the unfamiliar and hostile terrain of South-East Asia, this small band of infantrymen from diverse racial, cultural and philosophical backgrounds are ultimately forced to depend upon each other as brothers in arms fighting in a war that was to last almost 20 years.

Starring Terence Knox, Kevin Conroy, Stephen Caffrey, Joshua Maurer, Steve Akahoshi, Tony Becker, Eric Bruskotter, Stan Foster, Ramon Franco and Miguel A. Nunez Jr. and featuring songs by the likes of Wilson Pickett, Bob Dylan, Buffalo Springfield, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Procol Harum, The Temptations, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Beach Boys, Them, Stevie Wonder, Edwin Starr, Jimi Hendrix, Steppenwolf, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Chuck Berry, Roy Orbison, Merle Haggard, Percy Sledge and The Band, Tour Of Duty is a must-see series for fans of Oliver Stone's Platoon, Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket and Steven Spielberg's World War II based TV series Band Of Brothers and The Pacific.
