TWO VIETNAMS: Ken Burns’ & Ours. “As expected, Mr. Burns’ latest effort ‘Vietnam’ does a creditable job as a documentary. He covers the political incompetence and misdeeds that were well known to many of us. The competence of the North Vietnamese senior military personnel most likely came as a surprise to most viewers. What is regretful is his relatively flat and neutral portrayal of U.S. troops. According to his telling, there were few U.S. victories, the troops were all dissatisfied, and from a humanitarian standpoint they did little.”

History which does not fit the Narrative goes down the memory hole.
