Its on my DVR, and I have watched maybe 30 minutes of it at random times this week. It is NOT an easy watch...that's why I haven't really committed to it yet. I'm told its an incredibly intelligent and eye opening view told from both sides of the war. But fuck me, the footage that I watched briefly was heart breaking. Sitting thru ten hours of it is not going to be a good experience. But yes, agree that its a must watch.

the episodes are a minimum of 90 minutes long, 2 hours for some, so it is a lot more than 10 hours of truth to digest. it is every bit as good as you have read, and then some. the interviews with vets, on both sides, are truly profound. all in all it is infuriating to watch because it shows how such a horrible price was paid for a lesson so many Americans have either forgotten or never learned in the first place, and we are reliving a lot of the same things over again now. Trump IS Nixon, only worse, and one of the reasons is his supporters have much lower standards than Nixon supporters did. :twisted:

I didn't say anything about non-Americans not being able to watch it, I think it would probably be very interesting, as well as giving them all sorts of ammo when they want to rag on Americans :wink: :D
