A friendly photo of an American soldier looking endearingly at a Vietnamese mother holding her son - caption: the mother and her son killed by US artillery calle I found this book in a rather sparse History shelf of school library while hunting for some reading before lunch. A friendly photo of an American soldier looking endearingly at a Vietnamese mother holding her son - caption: the mother and her son killed by US artillery called in by the troop.
Or a picture of an thirsty, wounded VC whose intestine had already been out for 3 days, surrounded by GIs and ARVNs - caption: the Vietnamese interpreter suggested with schadenfreuder to let the VC drink the rice pad water while an US soldier rebutted with disdain: "Any soldier who can fight for three days with his insides out can drink from my canteen any time!

This photo also explored battle field, but devoted a substantial proportion to zoom-in the traditional Vietnamese tombs of 60s, 70s, pickpocketing teen clans of Saigon, the role of Vietnamese women - as VC insurgents, prostitutes, rape victims, children and elderly in "strategic hamlets" - with insightful analysis and understanding.

It bought it on sight without any thought about having to haul it until getting back home some weeks later The images and text are disturbing, of course. Griffiths' take is pointed.

To some the tone of text and image will also seem dated.
There are many shades of nostalgia, some are more dangerous and self-aggrandizing than others. Those with close experiences of this war will recognize familiar territory here. Those who were not alive or whose circumstance of age allowed for further remove, may see the 'dated' image before recognizing the present affiliations of this book. These are present enterprises engaged in war. It's all here. It's all still here. May 07, Rick rated it really liked it Recommends it for: every on with a conscience.
I got this a photography book, I was not quite prepared for the commentary. The crazy part is while it was horrible enough what we did in Vietnam, you can see that our "leaders" did it to us again in Iraq Iran anyone? We had a neighbor in Escondido, that was a very intense, somewhat of a whack but always very informed. In the 60's he was in the navy and heard from a friend in the gulf of tonkin, that the "incident" never took place.
Just a month or two ago, it was revealed, that yes, in truth I got this a photography book, I was not quite prepared for the commentary. Just a month or two ago, it was revealed, that yes, in truth, it was all a lie, Why aren't these men in jail? It is quick, it is horrific, we all need the reminder.
