In Country: Marvel Comics’ “The ‘Nam” — Episode 20

IC 20 CoverIn this special episode, I take a break from my regular coverage of The ‘Nam to present the first film in an occasional series of Vietnam War movies, Platoon.  Directed by Oliver Stone and winner of Best Picture for 1986, Platoon tells the story of Chris Taylor (Charlie Sheen) as he endures his tour in Vietnam.  I give some backstory on the film, a summary, and review.
