I watched part of it last night - the part covering 1966 through 1967. Then I watched part of the Tet Offensive. I have to admit I felt somewhat uncomfortable watching it. I'm not sure why - I have always been able to separate then from now so I can usually watch in a detached manner.

I was a bit annoyed by the frequency of commercials but I guess someone has to pay the bills.

I'm interested in what other folks thought.

I think it was ok but inaccurate in ways such as enemy body counts I remember counting same body 3 times so we could
get in country RR for most body counts in our battalion or when I was in Kahe sanh my 1st tour in 67 never heard about
hand to hand and fix bayonets, I guess hollywood had to put that effect in there to make it interesting for common people.
The truth was not 100%.
