Dateline: Viet Nam

For one dedicated reporter, Vietnam was not politics, strategy, or parades…it was reality. The real war didn't happen in a Pentagon or Saigon briefing room. The real war happened in-country.

For the soldier in the field, Vietnam was the terror of walking point deep in the Jungle, it was a white knuckled helicopter flight into the heart of darkness. Vietnam was an enemy you never saw, a buddy’s life snuffed out in front of you.

That was the real story of Vietnam, the story that did not make the papers as often as a general's speech or a politician’s press conference. But one reporter is changing all of that. And his reports from then and there bring readers straight to a part of hell.
