Char's Counterattack is a stand alone movie, there is no series. The movie makes references to the original Mobile Suit Gundam series and Zeta Gundam. If you want the full Amuro vs. Char story you need to watch Mobile Suit Gundam [I recommend the 3 movies over the tv series, plus the movies are cheaper], Zeta Gundam [the boxset was just released and it'll cost you somewhere between $150 and $200].
You can save yourself some time and maybe some money by getting the Gundam Movie set, it includes the 3 MSG movies that tell the original story, Char's Counterattack, and another movie called Miller's Report [it isn't very good though]. 5 movies for only $50-$60 is not bad at all, here's a link to animenaton's page but you can probably get it cheaper from Best Buy and retail stores like that: http://animenation.com/av-21020.html
