Their story is in danger of being lost to history. The men who came home from the Vietnam War represent a second silent generation. These are the men who won every battle in a lost war. Using the same experiential approach to storytelling as WWII in HD, HISTORY gives these veterans a voice. Through a collection of color Vietnam footage never seen by the public from private collections, museums, the U.S. government, veterans and news organizations as well as sources from Vietnam, they tell their stories and relive their struggles, courage and fears. This six-hour miniseries spans the massive initial troop build-up in 1965 to the fall of Saigon a decade later. Sound design builds on popular music from that era to powerfully evoke their experience.

"There are some events that are so overwhelming that you can't simply be a witness and it will be with you all of you days." This statement is what truly pulls me to want to see what the man is talking about.
This is truly a great undertaking. Many people do not appreciate this conflict, although it is the 3rd bloodiest in America's history. The polotics of the war are just overwhelming, this is the first time in our history in which being in the military was frowned upon. Since we did not honor this stupendous genreation then it is great that we should do it now. People jump immediately to respect Iraqi war veterans, which is the right idea, however, it is the Vietnam war veterans that deserve the utmost respect. Especially since they have been bereft of it for so long.
I couldn't make it past the 10 minute mark in this unforgivable production. Let's be clear here folks, and I hope the obviously young filmmakers who worked on this project hear this loud and clear. You cannot and must not ever stretch 4:3 content out to wide-screen 16:9! Yes, you've seen other low-quality film production companies do the same thing, because they thought it was okay, because they saw other people doing it. They were wrong -- you were wrong.
100 years of filmmaking, and not until this decade have people dared to assume that viewers were so unsophisticated and ignorant, that they would consider warping the image of a movie so that it fit an aspect ratio, as even remotely acceptable.
