Reflecting on both America and France's wars in Vietnam and the ideological struggle on the home front, this profusely illustrated book collects reportage from the pages of Life Magazine. Along with the iconic images of the protest at Kent State and the Vietnamese girl scalded by napalm, here too are dozens of rare photos documenting battles and protests, homecomings and reunions. The book includes a revisiting of Life's editorial treatment of the war, interviews with veterans, a photo essay on the history of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, a pictorial report on unified Vietnam today, and an overview of the photographers who risked—and in some cases, lost—their lives to document the war.
