Produced by the Editors of LIFE to celebrate the work of Larry Burrows, war photographer. Half of the book is devoted to the photographer's work in Vietnam, but the other half shows the enormous range of a man who was both a journalist and an artist - from the immemorial beauty of Angkor Wat and the Taj Mahal to the bizarre humour of a horde of Japanese fishermen. In everything, the compassionate touch of humanity shows through. A collection of b/w and colour full-page photographs with brief captions and a number of descriptive paragraphs. 12" x 10". Published 1972 by Time Inc. Very good, clean condition throughout: yellow cloth boards slightly marked: slipcase soiled and slightly bumped.
In March 1965, Marine Lieutnant Philip J. Caputo landed in Danang with the first ground combat unit committed to gith in Vietnam. Sixteen months later, having served on the line in one of modern history's ugliest wars, he returned home - physically whole, emotionally wasted, his youthful idealism shattered. A decade later, Caputo would write in A Rumor of War, 'This is simply a story about war, about the things men do in war and the things war does to them'. It is far more then that. It is, a Theodore Solotaroff wrote in the New York Times Book Review, 'the troubled conscience of America speaking passionately, truthfully, finally'. It is the book that shattered America's deliberate indifference to the fact of the men it sent to fight in the jungles of Vietnam, and in the years since it was first published it has become a basic text on that war. But in the literature of war that stretches back to Homer, it has also taken its place as an esteemed classic to rank alongside All Quiet on the Western Front and The Naked and the Dead.
