War Is Over... If You Want It






I've never really had the urge to search through the War section at Blockbuster but I am glad that I did. Along with more notetaking for the upcoming essay, I viewed Vietnam: War In The Jungle, a documentary following the war between the years 1968-1975 and as the description on the backcover rings true, it is a harrowing account of the tragedy that took place, "warts and all". I find it incredible that this actually happened, the battle claiming the lives of well over one million vietnamese. It left many American soliders questioning why it even occured, some regretting taking part in combat in the first place. Though only 68minutes long, viewers enter a world completely devoid of their own. Sometimes there are simply no words.
