    The most powerful Television I have ever experienced.

    Yes, I was able to get 30 minutes of one episode and it sure was a MUST see. His "The Civil War" , I find equally compelling. Ken Burns does top notch documentaries for mature audiences.

    Up to 6th episode. The best epsiode so far was #1 for me. I never knew anything about the real start of the conflict going back to 1945. Incredible, really. I was not aware of the conflict till I was in my teens and then it was over. I was enjoying Creedence Clearwater Revival in the late 60s, spinning records in the Caribbean. Vietnam...is that a place? The first time I knew there was some kind of conflict there was pictures in tabloids from Hong Kong. My mother would buy those but I could not read them. All I saw were B&W pictures of armored vehicles and tanks amongst bamboo fields. Never knew what was going on...and I had other things on my mind in my puberty.
