Filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick: The Vietnam War (New at Reason)

Their 18-hour miniseries looks at one of the most divisive, painful, and poorly understood episodes in American history.

Documentarians Ken Burns and Lynn Novick have spent the past decade making a film that aims to exhume the war's buried history.
