Overview

The stories of the men who came home from the Vietnam War represent a second silent generation. These are the men who won every battle in a lost war. Using the same experiential approach to storytelling as History's WWII in HD, the six-hour miniseries Vietnam in HD tells their vivid stories. The production premieres color Vietnam footage from private collections, museums, the U.S. government, veteran’s and news organizations, as well as sources from Vietnam. Spanning the massive initial troop build-up in 1965 to the fall of Saigon a decade later, Vietnam in HD presents soldiers' tales of their struggles, courage, and fears. Sound design, using popular music from that era, powerfully evokes the time period and experience. Note: Many scenes are graphic in nature and viewer discretion is advised.Created and produced by cable's History Channel, and intended as an unofficial companion piece to the earlier WWII in HD, this documentary saga deals with the thousands of Vietnam War draftees who came home from the United States seemingly in one piece. On a note of sad irony, the subjects at hand emerged "victorious" from an empty and meaningless conflict that never should have involved their home country in the first place. Using the same structural model as the WWII program and a comparable narrative approach, the saga draws from such elements as government archival footage, news clips, haunting period photographs and disturbing reflections - all used to re-evoke the era. As a word of warning, the documentary contains extremely graphic content, making it unsuitable for young viewers.
