Summary/Abstract: This monograph concerns the photography of the American war in Vietnam by photo-journalist Larry Burrows, in the context of the history and American cultural discourses of the conflict. The book situates Burrows's work in the history of war photography and in the context of the particular conditions of photojournalism during the Vietnam War, and then focuses on the analysis and interpretation of specific works by the photographer: photoessays appearing regularly in LIFE magazine between 1963 and 1970. At the center of the discussion is the 1963 photostory entitled One Ride with Yankee Papa 13, a pivotal piece in the history of representations of the Vietnam conflict in American media.
