A splendid account of the remarkable group of reporters who went to Vietnam at the dawn of America’s military involvement and told the story as they saw it—to remarkable and lasting effect. If it’s true that journalism is the first rough draft of history, theirs is a collective effort that endures. A wonderfully absorbing film.
