Summary

Summary

From the moment China Beach debuted in 1988, with its iconic opening credits set to the Supremes' 'Reflections' as its theme song, it was hailed as groundbreaking television. In an era of testosterone-driven war movies, China Beach delivered a unique perspective: the Vietnam War through the eyes of women. It is one of the best dramas ever presented about the true horrors of the Vietnam War and its effects on the lives of the soldiers and civilians involved.
