  1. 1. Vietnam War by Associated Press photographers
  2. 2. From Malcolm Browne’s photograph of the burning monk to Nick Ut’s picture of a nine-year-old girl running from a napalm attack, the Associated Press’s Saigon bureau captured the realities and tragedies of the Vietnam war. AP won six Pulitzer prizes for its war coverage, four for photography.
  3. 3. A distraught father holds the body of his child as South Vietnamese rangers look down from their armoured vehicle on 19 March 1964.

  4. 4. AP Photo/Horst Faas A South Vietnamese woman mourns over the body of her husband, found with 47 others in a mass grave near Hue, April 11, 1969. The victims were believed killed during the enemy occupation of Hue in 1968.

  6. 6. Bodies of US paratroopers lie near a command post during the battle of An Ninh, 18 September 1965. The paratroopers, of the 1st Brigade, 101st Airborne Division, were hit by heavy fire from guerrillas that began as soon as the first elements of the unit landed. The dead and wounded were later evacuated to An Khe, where the 101st was based. The battle was one of the first of the war between major units of US forces and the Vietcong Photograph: Henri Huet/AP
  7. 7. .

One hour later, as the possibility of an overnight attack by the Viet Cong disappeared, the troops moved out for another long, hot day hunting the elusive communist guerrillas in the jungle. January 1965
  8. 8. Life magazine photographer Larry Burrows (far left) struggles through elephant grass and the rotor wash of an American evacuation helicopter as he helps GIs carry a wounded soldier on a stretcher from the jungle to the chopper in Mimot, Cambodia on 4 May 1970.
