Loved It

This series is great for anyone who is not familiar with the Vietnam War. The personal accounts are wonderful and really take you inside the mindset of the time. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing from the soldiers, and appreciated the fact that the series attempted to stay away from political commentary / opinions about the war. I watched the series with two good friends who served in Vietnam, and both of them felt that it was an accurate portrayal of the war and the atmosphere at home. While it does gloss over some events, I suppose that cannot be helped since the series is only 6 episodes long, with each episode running about 45 minutes. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good overview of the war and wants to hear it from the mouths of the men and women who served there. I'm also happy to see that the History Channel is still occasionally producing series with real historical content.
