The Synopsis for The Vietnam War (2017) 1080p

Ken Burns and Lynn Novick's ten-part, 18-hour documentary series, THE VIETNAM WAR, tells the epic story of one of the most consequential, divisive, and controversial events in American history as it has never before been told on film. Visceral and immersive, the series explores the human dimensions of the war through revelatory testimony of nearly 80 witnesses from all sides-Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as combatants and civilians from North and South Vietnam. Ten years in the making, the series includes rarely seen and digitally re-mastered archival footage from sources around the globe, photographs taken by some of the most celebrated photojournalists of the 20th Century, historic television broadcasts, evocative home movies, and secret audio recordings from inside the Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations.

The Reviews for The Vietnam War (2017) 1080p

Reviewed byatlasmbVote: 9/10/10

The first episode of this ten-episode documentary by Ken Burns and LynnNovick sets the table with a history lesson spanning 1858 to 1961. Acomprehensive and insightful accounting, it begins with the Frenchconquest of Indochina and ends about the time that JFK is elected.Viewers are led through the complexities of Vietnamese history in a waythat highlights the pivot points that resulted in the conflict we callthe Vietnam War. This includes the partitioning of the territory intonorthern and southern states separated by a demilitarized zone.

Episode two details developments through the Kennedy presidency.Numerous American failures are iterated. At this point, the death of 47Americans (total) was considered a failure.

It remains to be seen how subsequent episodes will present the war andfracturing American sentiments at home, but so far the narrative feelsfairly objective and without political agenda. I will return to updatethis review as the series continues.

I am looking forward to more first hand accounts and evocative periodmusic.

As much of a fan I am of Burns Civil War, as well as his (underrated?)Jazz documentary, it's hard to not notice how there is due to theperiod its about that there's a distinct lack of footage to drawn upon.The Vietnam War is the opposite, as Burns and Lynn Novick draw upon amassive plethora of footage from all sides, from the combat bolex 16mmphotographers to footage from the Vietcong and in Hanoi to theprotesters and (thank goodness) lots and lots of juicynever-before-heard (or little heard) audio tapes from Johnson andKennedy and so on. But at the same time if it was just that it wouldmake for some compelling viewing and still only be as far as that, somegood footage showing us things about Vietnam most of us don't knowabout or may have forgotten since school (or if one does know a lotabout, like I've seen in social media, there may be holes to poke, butI digress).

No, what gets this the full 5-stars is that its master storytellers ata peak: this is the story of Vietnam from all of the conceivableangles: the hundred year or so lead-up to how the French were finallydriven out of Vietnam by Ho Chi Minh (who quoted from US *theDeclaration of Independence* in his speech after the French were goneto his people) to the years in the 50's when that divide between Northand South sewed the seeds of all the problems that were to come, andthen how the very first Americans died in *1959*, and then all of theperspectives: the US Military; the presidencies; the anti-warprotesters; the soldiers recounting back on the US side AND theVietnamese (especially the Vietnamese); the parents and family membersof service members; locals and civilians in Vietnam, north and south.Every step of the way we are drawn in through the step-by-step processand how it was kind of inexorable; the US could have gotten out atmultiple points, but due to the Cold War, Communism, a gargantuan senseof pride as WW2 and Korea had come in the recent consciousness, theywere stuck in a civil war that they should have not been a part of.

In other words, Burns/Novick are charting all of the history that canfit into ten hours, and I'm sure if there are Vietnam war buffs they'llsay this or that is missing. For those who only know so much they layit all out in such a way that is harrowing and achingly personal (lookat episode 3 with the story of the teenage boy who feels it's his dutyso much to get into combat that he runs away for four months until hisparents say it's okay... and you realize this is not going to turn outwell, but you try not to think of that while his story is told),through all of the interviews with real guys who fought and came backand the stare is still there after over forty/fifty years. There'sregret, there's trying to put things into context, there's more regret,there's footage that shows more than one might expect about thetrepidation of the soldiers then (a hard-assed marine captain whoadmitted in an interview he wished he could have 200 of the Vietcong asthey were "good soldiers").

There's so much to wrestle with here about American Imperialism - ifnot the beginning of it, then the crystallization of it - theentrenchment of politics through combat (Johnson doomed himself throughnot going more for peace and instead digging in to his advisors - andthen of course Nixon, good lord that walking-talking curse word) - andthen how real people, citizens being fed from the trough ofanti-Communism (and on the flip-side how the Americans were exactlylike the French, like there were no differences at all, asWestern-European invaders), and it's both dense and easy to follow. I'mnot even done with it yet and I'm tempted to say it's the best thingBurns has done.

I'm honestly shocked at some of the negative reviews. This is quitecomprehensive and almost seems appropriate that there are so manypersonal accounts intertwined. It's actually a blessing to have so manypeople from that generation (I was a baby and young child over thoseyears) able to share their insight.

From the beginning, we get the history of France's involvement in theregion starting in the mid 19th century and it leads through thepolitical history of Vietnam along with some of their key leaders.

I think for many who think Vietnam was a mistake, its true but perhapsnot for the reasons many assume. But there is a lot of overlap overadministrations from Truman to Nixon back then to what's happening nowstarting with Iraq and likely even before then. We never learned thelessons of Vietnam and to this day over both democratic and republicancontrolled leadership, we have made the same mistakes in the MiddleEast.

This's should be must TV for people today to see how much we and ourleaders haven't learned.
