          Burns and Novick’s Vietnam War: Doesn’t Give Peace Movement a Chance
    
          September 23, 2017
    
          Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s Vietnam War, the 18-hour PBS documentary, is bleak. Unfortunately, this perspective is applied equally to antiwar protesters and policymakers, creating a film that is both antiwar and anti-war movement. The popular movement to end the war was one of the truly redemptive stories of the Vietnam War. Yet, Burns and Novick offer at once a thorough indictment of the war, and a dismissal of most of the people who committed themselves to ending it.
