    Many war films will be shown this Memorial Day weekend on TV with the Hollywood version of war but in 2003' an 85 year old Vietnam era Sec. of Defense Robert S. McNamara sat down in the documentary, "The Fog of War" to give his view and the many lessons learned from his years as soldier in WW2 and his service as Sec. of Defense at the start of Vietnam. Regardless of your view of that era, a very worthwhile viewing.

    A good documentary, one I've watched many times. A very effective illustration of, among other things, the personal/abstract view of war.
