one of the best documentaries on vietnam
3 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

Missing fromthe overall scope of this documentariy was the invoivlement of foreign forces, french, durtch, british and canadian and australian etc. in exchange groups small numbers of israelis..etc. TEN THOUSAND DAY WAR was fine also yet this series by WGBH in boston and others was more provocative and hit the war from both sides...detractor and supporter. hard hitting tv. PBS's finest hour.
