Summary
  • "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"--Publisher's description
  • "While a plethora of books exists about and by the civilian media who covered the Vietnam War, Vietnam Bao Chi is the first book that reveals the plodding through the Vietnam jungle mud carried out by American soldiers, Marines, airmen, sailors and Coast Guardsmen whose job it also was to record the conflict. Along with their weapons and 50-pound backpacks, they recorded the battles with still or TV cameras, pens and pads of paper. Theirs was a different mission than that of their civilian counterparts. They were tasked with showing the bravery and the good that was accomplished by U.S. troops in a long, hard-fought war. 'l operated on several late evening flights where the aircraft mission was to provide very specific coverage of a ground operation that was in trouble. We called it '[being] in the shit,' said Eddie Carroll, U.S. Air Force combat cameraman. 'The internal conflict between taking pictures and cranking rounds downrange was always a potential problem, and I had to remain aware that if I didn't get back to Saigon with good photos, I'd probably be restricted to darkroom and printing assignments in the future,' remembered U.S. Navy combat photographer Dennis McCloskey. 'I always understood that I was participating in something historical, something larger than any life I'd led up to that time. I was learning from first-hand experience that in combat you can see the entire range of human emotion and behavior from the very best to the very worst. That fascinated me and I never lost interest in it,' said writer/actor/film maker Marine Captain (ret.) Dale Dye, who was wounded in Hue during the Tet Offensive. This never-before-told story of what the combat correspondents and photographers encountered in Vietnam will fascinate readers, Vietnam veterans, historians, journalists and journalism students alike."--Dust jacket
