Vietnam War Vet Critiques Ken Burns’ New PBS Documentary

Vietnam War Vet Critiques Ken Burns’ New PBS Documentary

Lewis Sorley is a veteran, military historian, and author of the book, “A Better War: The Unexamined Victories and Final Tragedy of America’s Last Years in Vietnam.” On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Sorley discusses his understanding of the Vietnam war, and how Ken Burns’ portrayal of Vietnam is revisionist history.

“I came to believe that Burns didn’t much care for American and that came through in the documentary,” Sorley said. “He’s saying in effect, ‘This is an unwinnable war.'”

Later in the hour, Domenech and Sorley discuss POWs, military leaders, and how today’s veterans of the Iraq War compare to our Vietnam war veterans.
