Looking Back at the Vietnam War: But Why Now?

Following up on the Ken Burns series on Vietnam, CCAE offers this provocative 6-session evaluation of our basic assumptions about this unique event in U.S. history and the implications of the Vietnam experience for today’s wars. Using selections from the PBS series’, lectures, speaker and historical documents, this in-depth history of the different periods of the war will open up fresh perspectives which replace confusion with clarity.
