Ken Burns and Lynn Novick's new 10-part, 18-hour documentary series tells the epic story of one of the most consequential, divisive, and controversial events in American history as it has never before been told on film. The series explores the human dimensions of the war through revelatory testimony of nearly 80 witnesses from all sides—Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as combatants and civilians from North and South Vietnam.
The Vietnam War: A film by Ken Burns & Lynn Novick features stories from a wide variety of perspectives. We want to hear your voice too! If you or a loved one experienced events surrounding the war – whether you were in the military, a protestor, a conscientious objector, a South or North Vietnamese soldier or citizen, or if you feel a connection to the places and people involved in the war – we want to hear your story.
