Plot & Details

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.
