Product description

Requiem: By the Photographers Who Died in Vietnam and Indochina

Between the French Indochina war of the fifties and the fall of Phnom Penn and Saigon in 1975, 135 photographers from different nations were killed. Horst Faas, two-times Pullitzer Prize winner and Chief Photographer for The Associated Press in Saigon at the height of the war, and Tim Page, another veteran who had been badly wounded, have gathered many thousands of photos from the Western agencies and from archives in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. These have now been assembled to form both a monument to the dead and a record of the most terrifying war photography ever taken. Never again will the media have the kind of access to the war zone that was offered to the photographers in Vietnam. In many cases the photographers tried to get as close as possible, then paid the price.

One of the most powerful documents of the war in South-east Asia that has ever been published.

Published by Jonathan Cape, 1997
Edited by Horst Faas and Tim Page

Book Condition: Spine is coming away slightly. Dust jacket has creases, scratches and is missing a piece from the back (Pictured). Pages in nice clean condition. Dark blue boards have minor marks.

An extremely rare book!
