Vietnam was a terribly dangerous place for journalists -- especially photographers. The war took the lives of some of the finest photojournalists of a generation: Larry Burrows, Gilles Caron, Bernard Fall, Henri Huet, Oliver Noonan, and Dana Stone, among them. It was a war in which journalists had extraordinary freedom of movement and access to battles. That access, uniquely free from military oversight, resulted in some of the fiercest war photography ever produced. Robert Capa famously said that if you're pictures aren't good enough, it's because you're not close enough. But Capa was killed covering the conflict in Indochina in 1954.
