I'm 53, so I came in on the tail end of it. My dad would watch the news and I remember the body counts. Even at 4 or 5, I thought they must be BS.

I think the documentary is fantastic. The history lesson on how we inherited France's mess was very helpful. It made me think about how we ended up with the UK's mess in the Middle East. I catch myself yelling at the screen when they show guys like Westmoreland and McNamara. I hope there's a special corner in hell where they're in firefights with the VC every day of their eternity.
