Dateline: PHU LOI by Robert Vaughan
For one dedicated reporter, Vietnam wasn't politics, wasn't strategy, wasn't parades. It was reality.
The real war didn't happen in a Pentogon 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 budd's life snuffed out in front of you.
That was the real story of Vietnam, the story that didn't make the papers as often as a general's speech or a politition's press conference. But one reporter is changing all that. And his reports from then and there bring readers straight to a part of hell.
