Ten years after the end of the Vietnam War, three American veterans who have never resigned themselves to defeat decided to organize a mission to return to Indochina. Their goal is to liberate the "missing in action", i.e. all those fellow soldiers taken prisoner by the Viet Cong and never let go.



Operation Nam was released in West Germany as Die Rückkehr der Wildgänse in July 31 1986.[1]
