The Vietnam War: Additional resources

The Vietnam War

Additional resources to accompany the series by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick


The Vietnam War, the 10-part PBS documentary series by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, tells the epic story of one of the most consequential and controversial events in American history.

Written by Geoffrey C. Ward and produced by Sarah Botstein, the film includes rarely seen archival footage, photographs taken by some of the most celebrated photojournalists of the 20th century, historic television broadcasts, evocative home movies, and secret audio recordings from inside the Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations. 

The Miller Center's Marc Selverstone and Ken Hughes served as consultants on the series, utilizing many of the Secret White House Tapes that can be found here.
