Storyline

VIETNAM: AMERICAN HOLOCAUST exposes one of the worst cases of sustained mass slaughter in history, carefully planned and executed by presidents of both parties. Our dedicated generals and foot soldiers, knowingly or unknowingly, killed nearly 5 million people, on an almost unimaginable scale, mostly using incendiary bombs. Vietnam has never left our national consciousness, and now, in this time, it has more relevance than ever. Claiborne documents the Whitehouse fabrication of the Gulf of Tonkin Incident, and further, raises the question of whether JFK was assassinated to promote the Vietnam War. Martin Sheen, who played the leading role in Apocalypse Now almost 30 years ago, has generously lent his powerful voice to this actual history of the War in Vietnam. Written by Juri Koll for Linux Beach Productions

A Must See for history buffs

This documentary is a very cogent presentation, relevant to today as much as to then. Claiborn makes a judicious use of flashback news segments, unlike some documentaries that I have watched, which overuse such clips and segments. An interesting account of the Viet Nam war, very informative, like the news you never got but wish you did! It has the feel of really being there; the filmmaker Claiborn must have spent much time there gathering information and a film library from which to cull shots... And the choice of Martin Sheen for narrator works well as a recognized voice, adds to the feel of an authoritative account of events.
