R E Q U I E M
|For most of the first year
following the buildup of American troops in Vietnam, the war was relatively
cost-free. It was, to the military, a chance to try out new weapons and
tactics. It provided a means for career officers to get their "ticket punched."
However, in early 1966, main-force North Vietnamese entered the war. It was with this battle, the tides began to turn. The United States began to realize that the undeclared war was about to become an ordeal.
With this photograph we start a series about this battle by Henri Huet.
