Pretty Dire
21 September 2019 | by small_pigeonSee all my reviews

A great premise for a documentary - however, it soon became clear that this was lowest common denominator television. Terrible re-enactments, big flashing graphics to maintain your interest, a cavalcade of talking heads who traded in seemingly weighty but ultimately trite soundbites: "war is the ultimate test of character".

Having read about LBJ's war service (he went out of his way to avoid it), it was clear that the producers of this documentary wanted to avoid any nuance and instead settled for lots of gun sounds and explosions.

Avoid.
