In an immersive narrative, Ken Burns and Lynn Novick tell the epic story of the Vietnam War as it has never-before been told on film. THE VIETNAM WAR features testimony from nearly 80 witnesses, including many Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as
Vietnamese combatants and civilians from both the winning and losing sides.

The first episode airs September 17th on PBS. On September 19th we’ll meet over the lunch hour from noon to one o’clock to discuss the first episode, and we’ll continue to meet Tuesday after each week’s segment. As well as discussing topics covered in the episode, we’ll see what added material is available on-line.
