Both free streaming on Amazon Prime.

As stated by pilots in both documentaries, high losses during ground support and bombing mission were due to insane rules of engagement set by micromanaging politicians while flying against an incredible Soviet and Chinese supplied air defense system in North Vietnam. I don't know what the "Robot Check" text is all about for the Amazon links.
