The man who conceived the idea of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and who was the driving force behind its realization recounts the story of the political maneuvering, imaginative fundraising, and the design competition that brought the memorial into being.
Reveals the origins of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and tells the story of its 21 year old creator, a Yale architecture student. Lin's plan was selected from over 1,000 different designs. And what began as one of the country's most bitterly disputed monuments became one of the world's most inspirational and frequently visited memorials.
