Vietnam: The Real War

Introduction by Pete Hamill

Hardcover, 304 pages ($40, Abrams)

Its release timed with the beginning of ongoing 50th anniversary observances of the beginning of the war in Vietnam, this sweeping, spectacular chronicle compiles the work of more than 50 courageous photojournalists assigned to the heart of the conflict. With 300 photos capturing both the horror and the humanity of America’s messy involvement in a bloody, protracted power struggle that stretched across two decades (presented chronologically with contextual highlights from distinguished war correspondents), it’s a reminder of the extraordinary power of imagery, an unflinching history from the sobering distance of half a century, and one of the most profound collected photographic legacies of the entire 20th century.
