Description - Vietnam Bao Chi: Warriors of Word and Film by Marc Phillip Yablonka
Brings together interviews with 35 combat correspondents who wrote the stories, captured the images and filmed the television coverage of the Vietnam War. Vietnam Bao Chi brings together interviews with 35 combat correspondents who reported on the Vietnam War. They wrote the stories of Vietnam, captured the images and filmed the television coverage of their fellow servicemen on the battlefields from the Mekong Delta in the south to the DMZ in Central Vietnam, from the Tet Offensive in 1968 to the fall of Saigon in 1975. Yablonka's extensive experience as a military journalist brought him into contact with many of these combat correspondents, giving him a unique insight into their professions and lives. This book honours these brave chroniclers in uniform who brought the Vietnam War back to the public at home. AUTHOR: Marc Yablonka is a military journalist and author.
