Description: A biography of David Halberstam, Neil Sheehan, Peter Arnett & Charlie Mohr, a determined, contentious group at odds with everone from the U.S. government to their own editors. In 1961 the Vietnam War had yet to become the massive tragedy that we know today. According to Prochnau, Saigon was a "tempting oriental backwater" and it is in this setting that these young journalists were seduced by the country whose story they would attempt to bring home. A very good copy, in dust jacket (546 pages, 31 illustrations, appendices, notes, bibliography, index.)
