I’ve been watching the series. A lot of upper level politics, which is to be expected. After being rehashed for what?...42 years (yikes!), I’ve seen most of the photos and videos in other presentations.
A little concerned about the body count coverage. I can’t speak to the up the chain exaggeration, but at the direct contact level in a Marine infantry battalion, I can tell you we only reported what we had actually killed. And we killed plenty during the year I was there (1968-1969).
I hope Burns will emphasize how costly winning the war was for Vietnamese men of that generation.
