the missing years 1960 - 1963, 15 May 2007
Author: chasmilt777 from Dallas, Texas

I have always enjoyed PBS documentaries, but I was very disappointed in this one. It starts off with LBJ and the Vietnam war in 1964. What happened to the first three years of that decade ? To me, it was how LBJ got into power and all the corruption and deception to the American people that made the youth revolt in the streets. Seeing the murder of JFK in streets of Dallas had to be the starting point of the darkest years in my generation. The United States was on the verge of another Civil War because the people felt that they no longer ran the country and wanted to express their views. These students tested the powers in control. They knew that they would be beaten, arrested, and perhaps shot down for there beliefs. They wanted to take back their country from the corrupt politicians and corporations who were supplying a war machine.

This DVD did bring out some interesting facts, especially the students who marched in other parts of the world, such as Prague, Germany, and France.
