The Ken Burns PBS Documentary on the Viet Nam War

The purpose of this section is to track articles, opeds, commentary and criticism of the Ken Burns documentary on Viet Nam.  Preliminary indications are that it will perpetuate some of the myths regarding the 2nd Indochina War.  We hope to offset those with critiques of every episode and in-depth analysis of the good, the bad and the questionable.
