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.
