TV Mini-Series | TV-MA | | Documentary, History, War
A comprehensive history of the United States' involvement in the bitterly divisive armed conflict in Southeast Asia.
Many of the combat footage reels shown throughout the series are not from the battle being discussed, for example, during the discussion of Saigon during the Tet Offensive, several videos filmed in the city of Hue are shown as if they are in Saigon.
In a number of instances the music is totally out of place, an example being the use of Led Zeppelin's Kashmire (1975) to support content from 1969 and two previously unknown alternate takes of Beatles songs that weren't even released until Anthology (1995) - a full generation after the depicted events.
