about this book

In Once Upon a Distant War Prochnau vividly brings to life the adventures of a small group of young, audacious, and driven war correspondents who first brought Vietnam to the American popular consciousness.  With the evocative eye of a novelist and the experience of a prize-winning journalist, Prochnau introduces us to men such as David Halberstam, Peter Arnett, and Neil Sheehan and through the immediacy of these portraits and the retelling of their adventures, Prochnau offers students a rare glimpse of America as it stumbled quite blindly into the quagmire of Southeast Asia.
