Written by Pulitzer Prize winning CNN correspondent Peter Arnett, Vietnam: The Ten-Thousand Day War is a comprehensive, balanced look at the Vietnam war, tracing the entire course of the conflict, from the closing days of World War II to the fall of Saigon in 1975. This superb award-winning series of programs re-examines without blame or judgment the rise and fall of America's 20-year commitment to the war in Vietnam. Forceful and evocative, with film clips shot by both sides, it revisits the time and place that molded a generation and changed the course of American politics forever. - Publisher.
