Wow. I think I'd like to add this book to my personal collection. This is a powerful and sad, but fitting tribute, to those photographers who died or went missing during the Vietnam conflict.

Even without the text, it would be hard not to moved by some of these images.

The pictures of the soldiers especially helps you visualize each individual and it sure helped me understand the sacrifice of these men.
