More Reviews of “The Vietnam War”


The Burns-Novick eighteen-hour documentary on the Vietnam War ended earlier this week. I am still trying to get my head around everything I saw.  Since I am not a historian of the war and have not read too much about it, I am finding it hard to anchor my emotions.  And since I do not plan on digging deeper (at least in a scholarly way) into the Vietnam War any time soon, I will need to rely on what others are saying.
