Vietnam on Prime-time

Le Temps des médias n°4, printemps 2005, p.188-199

The Tour of Duty was one of only two American television series that dared depict the daily lives of Americans in Vietnam. Broadcast for the first time, on prime-time, between 1987 and 1990, it remained extremely conventional in its style although it touched on a highly controversial subject. The article’s careful analysis of the series’ episodes uncovers how the series propagated a neo-conservative vision of American society and of America’s role in the world, based on its rewriting of the Vietnam war.
