This volume presents a record of this pivotal historical episode in which the public was, for the first time, brought face to face with the realities of modern warfare through extensive photographic and film activity by the press. The text and hundreds of b&w and color photographs illustrate the powerful images of death and destruction viewed by many Americans in their own living rooms, resulting in the horror and revulsion that led to opposition to the war. The text is by freelance writer Greg Mattson and military historian Leo J. Daugherty III. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

display_description The Vietnam War is without doubt one of the most significant events in the history of the United States. It remains the longest conflict ever fought by the U.S. armed forces and the longest war in modern history. More than 50,000 servicemen lost their lives but numbers alone cannot convey the impact of the war on the world's most powerful democracy. It was unique at the time for its high visibility as millions of families watched the war fought out on their television screens night after night. The camera became more powerful than the automatic rifle capturing the graphic images of death and destruction done not only to the military but all too often to the civilian population.
