    The presentation of 'Peace with Honor' is nice, but it's the subject matter that really proves dreary. It's a good episode and really shows the Vietnam war from a big picture standpoint - and just as previously, archival news footage is put to great use here and shades in the negative spaces left by the talking heads. But this makes it ever so clear why the '70s were such a dispiriting time for this country; the catastrophes of both Vietnam and Watergate just seemed to attack at the same time.

    It's a good piece on the matter, even if that story leaves an acrid taste.
