Ken Burns Documentary, Vietnam War

Post by parrot » September 13, 2017, 4:55 pm

For those who enjoy documentaries, PBS will begin broadcasting the Ken Burns documentary on the Vietnam War on 18 Sept. He's the same man who produced the 1990 documentary on the Civil War (also a good view) that won a number of cinematic awards.

For a bit of history on the Vietnam Memorial.......today's article recounts the history of how the memorial came about....or almost didn't.

You can view the Vietnam War documentary through a vpn. If you use Chrome, you can add a free extension called SetupVPN. Although I have a subscription to a paid VPN, I tried the free vpn today and was able to watch the first episode of Ken Burns' work. As always, a good view.

I really enjoyed Burns' series on the US Civil War. Too dry just to read on the US Civil War for this foreigner but his documentaries were really gripping.

As for Vietnam, I like watching docos on the American War (as the Vietnamese) say on youtube. It was a really interesting period in history.
