PBS presents Burns Novick The Vietnam War
#1
Is anyone watching this right now?

I have the ten disk set, and I am waiting for when I have time to sit down and view it all.

I am getting some pretty bad reports so far on the spin of the series. Specifically about how it started as some kind of noble gesture, the papering over of Kennedy's withdrawal plan and also the Tonkin Gulf incident as some kind of retaliation against the north. I mean how do you retaliate for one bullet? You start a war over it?

Very discouraging if its true. There is so much good info on this today. And it does not appear that this show uses it.
