55 Incredible And Historic Black And White Photos Of Vietnam

The war in Vietnam has been described as the war America watched from their living rooms. Images of combat and American GIs were projected through our TV screens and across our newspapers daily.

During the war in Vietnam, the American military gave the press unprecedented freedom of access to combat zones. This allowed newspaper reporters and photographers and television crews to document a war involving American sons and daughters on the other side of the world. This willingness to allow documentation of the war was also extended to the military’s own photographers.

Between 1962 and 1975, military photographers took millions of photographs of the American conflict in Vietnam. These photographs serve publishers, historians, and students who want to learn more about Vietnam. They include images of almost every aspect of the war.
