This volume assembles Vietnam War-related stories by twenty Pulitzer Prize laureates - reporters, cartoonists, photographers and book authors - about various phases and aspects of the fightings. There are articles about the origins of the conflict, shocking reports from the combat zones or disclosures of American war crimes; there are book portions re President Nixon's war conduct, anti-war demonstrations in Washington or the death of soldiers; there are cartoons expressing U.S. illusions about alleged war successes or the loss of thousands of casualties; and there are pictures showing Vietnamese civilians facing the war: family members fleeing across a river or children escaping from a war zone after napalm bombings.
