Synopsis


Vietnam in HD
Created and produced by cable's History Channel, and intended as an unofficial companion piece to the earlier WWII in HD, this documentary saga deals with the thousands of Vietnam War draftees who came home from the United States seemingly in one piece. On a note of sad irony, the subjects at hand emerged "victorious" from an empty and meaningless conflict that never should have involved their home country in the first place. Using the same structural model as the WWII program and a comparable narrative approach, the saga draws from such elements as government archival footage, news clips, haunting period photographs and disturbing reflections - all used to re-evoke the era. As a word of warning, the documentary contains extremely graphic content, making it unsuitable for young viewers. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

    Got this for my brother - who lucked out and spent his hitch in Germany w/army. Thought he should see it so he could understand how lucky he was and how grateful I am that he did not experience it. A roommate of mine did go w/navy - and his story of "sea-float" was just hellish! A good history lesson. May the strength of God follow all those who did.
