Has everyone gotten their initial Ken Burns fix? The first episode was 90 minutes last night and just excellent. Most of what I saw was new to me. I expect to learn so much from this series. Last night did not disappoint. I had no idea that the beginning issues went back to 1858.
Like much that happened post WWII, we sure misread that one, and of course, sacrificed another generation of young men as a result. 57,000 names on a wall is just too many names–too many names for something we shouldn’t have been involved in.
Start looking for parallels. How long will we be involved in our current wars? Is there an end in sight? Bush, Obama and Trump have all been swallowed up by our current wars.
When will we ever learn?
Meanwhile, enjoy a fine documentary. I look forward to seeing all sides. Each show is 90 minutes and it runs for 2 weeks. For those who miss an episode, there are lots of opportunities the next day to catch a missed show. The last few episodes appear to be 120 minutes each. The series runs 18 hours in all.
