Airs Sunday, September 30 at 8:00 p.m. Tim O’Brien’s stirring and poignant tale of foot soldiers in the Vietnam War shapes this entire program. “The Things They Carried” is a powerful fictional depiction of the reality of America’s doomed enterprise in Vietnam. It is the title story of a book in which O’Brien follows one platoon of “grunts”, and its fantastic literary conceit is that their experience can best be conveyed by detailed listings of the actual things that the men carried in their backpacks and pockets, and on their shoulders and necks.
