I was impressed with the early episodes of this series, but it goes down hill beginning with episode 3. First, though the producers come up with some very good images of the war, they did not do their research very well. They show images of US Army infantrymen in combat while telling a story concerning the Marines on the DMZ. There are many examples of the film not matching the story being told. Second, by episode 3 they are starting to repeat the same film images over and over again. Third, there is virtually no mention of the other Free World allies that supported our war effort - the Australians, New Zealanders, South Korean, Thai, the Philipino soldiers who fought side by side with us. Unlike today's "Coalition of the Willing" in Afghanistan and Iraq, these Allies stayed with us to the very end in 1972 and did more than their fair share of the fighting. However, you would not know that watching this series. And finally, while the series emphasizes that we propped up an corrupt regime in Saigon, it seldom mentions that the ARVN did a majority of the fighting and dying in that war.
The one compelling segment of this series centers on the 1968 Tet Offensive and the reaction of the Johnson Administration.Read more ›
