the vietnam war series pbs review

This series by the Public Broadcasting Service has one of the best series to cover both sides.  Interviews from the US, North and South  Korea, covering some of the  reasons behind what happened during the war. Some parts remind me of Tora Tora Tora and Band of Brothers, but this one stands on it’s own. The war was hotly contested when it happened and is still something that is debated years later.
The DVD set comes as two volumes of five discs each covering all sorts of items history buffs and Vietnam enthusiasts will find very interesting.  The bonus content is a little light, but there is a good deal regular content to keep you glued to your seat for a while.  Take some time to watch this one and learn a few things that they didn’t teach you in grade school.
The Vietnam War documentary has over 18 hours of film that will captivate you while you learn more about this part of our military’s history. You can get your copy of The Vietnam War on DVD now!

About The Vietnam War: A Film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick:

Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s ten-part, 18-hour documentary series, “THE VIETNAM WAR” tells the epic story of one of the most consequential, divisive, and controversial events in American history as it has never before been told on film. Visceral and immersive, the series explores the human dimensions of the war through revelatory testimony of nearly 80 witnesses from all sides — Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as combatants and civilians from North and South Vietnam. The series includes rarely seen, digitally re-mastered archival footage from sources around the globe, photographs taken by some of the most celebrated photojournalists of the 20th Century, historic television broadcasts, evocative home movies, and secret audio recordings from inside the Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon administrations. “THE VIETNAM WAR” features more than 100 iconic musical recordings from greatest artists of the era, and haunting original music from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross as well as the Silk Road Ensemble featuring Yo-Yo Ma.
