    The first 8 episodes were very interesting in dealing with the French involvement, the US being bogged down in Vietnam. Episode 9 started off becoming a bit too preaching for me and stopped watching it when they trotted out John Kerry.
  • Breathtaking Documentary

    After watching all ten episodes I must say that this documentary took extremely complicated diverse issues and made them into a tangible, thoughtfully produced piece. Not only is this body of work powerful, intriguing and honest, it painstakingly places these incredibly complex events in a comprehensive chronological manner with views from all sides. It truly is a work of art. A masterpiece. It grips you and lingers in your mind long after you’ve watched its final minutes fade into credits.
  • My Daddy’s War as Seabee and Mine

    My dad had three tours in Vietnam as a Seabee who got the areas ready for the marines to arrive. After watching this wonderful series I too relived those years but daddy was forever changed as was the millions of other brave men and women. Those years changed me as well God bless all because a lot of the men and women will pass away with more insight and true stories that they rather bury with them then share
  • Incredible.

    Riveting and thought provoking. The music coincided perfectly with the era. I am deeply grateful for those that served and was drawn to tears several times through the program. I feel a deeper connection to that generation now.
  • A Veteran's View of The Vietnam War by Burns and Novick

    5
    By Sgt. Michael
    I'm an RVN vet . . . served with the 1st Infantry Division as a combat photographer. I watched the entire series and believe Ken Burns and Lynn Novice got it right. They seemed to concentrate on the experiences of ordinary people both at home and in Vietnam lending acredibility to the raw emotions that accompanied those events. It was more of a human story rather than a pictorial textbook. They compensated things they couldn't get, the smells, the heat, the fear, the rage, the joy, the sadness by allowing those people to tell their stories. The last episode revealed the emotions of those who fought and those who protested quite well and both the initiated and the uninitiated alike a look at the still-present anger and guilt. Paul McCartney's "Let It Be" was a fitting end.
  • Amazing.
