“I was going to the worst place in the world and I didn’t even know it yet. Weeks away and hundreds of miles up a river that snaked through the war like a main circuit cable plugged straight into Kurtz. It was no accident that I got to be the caretaker of Colonel Walter E. Kurtz’s memory any more than being back in Saigon was an accident. There is no way to tell his story without telling my own. And if his story really is a confession, then so is mine.”[1]
–Captain Benjamin L. Willard

Since its release in 1979, Apocalypse Now has become one of the most epic and well-known American war movies set during the conflict in Vietnam. Using this controversial historical backdrop, Apocalypse Now explores the depths of the human mind and its constant battle between good and evil. The historical accuracy of the movie and its use as a primary source is analyzed through the examination of the movie, as well as the use of both primary and secondary sources.
