ABC News Closeup: Vietnam Requiem

ABC News

America’s continuing self-reflection about Vietnam is effectively realized in this compelling work. Intercutting the recollections of five veterans, now in prison for a variety of civilian crimes, which television archives footage, this outstanding work personalizes both the issues and the consequences of the United States’ involvement in Southeast Asia. Marked by extensive research, fine writing, and excellent editing, Vietnam Requiem is, at its heart, a compelling, continuing human drama.
