Looks good

Like Ken Burns. Very interested in Vietnam history. Should be a good combo

Also highly recommend Last Days of Vietnam - all about the US exit from Saigon. Tremendous documentary.

Did three weeks in Vietnam 3 years back. Probably the most amazing country I've ever visited, would recommend highly to anyone who gets the chance. The War Museum and particularly the Agent Orange room is harrowing.

The Cu Chi tunnels tour is also marvelous. The bamboo death traps they made for the GI's were ingenious in their brutality...tiny little tunnels to crawl through too, must've been terrifying for the yanks sent into clear them.

Does fascinate me the Vietnam war and it's something I need to read about and watch more stuff on. Started reading a book called Chickenhawk I think it was called a few years ago on holiday and didn't get round to carrying it on. It was good.
