This book is so well organized and referenced that it could easily be a textbook on the Vietnam War. The author clearly went to great lengths to match incredible photographs with soldiers' stories so that the reader is "seeing" and "hearing" the war from the battlefront. Everyone who lived through this era needs to read this book. Everyone who thinks war is "O.K." needs to read it as well. --Amazon Reviewer
This is a very powerful book, weaving the "official" announcements alongside actual quotations from US and VN military soldiers. The photography fits perfectly. --Amazon Reviewer
Vietnam Album follows the footsteps of the 25th Infantry Division's struggle during the Vietnam War with appropriate and accurate historical annotations. Countless, gripping firsthand accounts highlighted with amazing photographs taken by men they knew. This ebook is one I will keep to show my children. --Amazon Reviewer

After graduating from OCS at the top of his class and a year as a Signal officer in Washington, Christopher Burns was assigned as Command Information Officer of the 25th Infantry Division in Vietnam where he led a team of photographers, writers and editors producing a weekly newspaper, a quarterly magazine and other special publications. His book about 25th Division operations, 1969: Vietnam, was named the best publication in the Army for that year, and he was twice awarded the Bronze Star. After leaving the Army, Burns worked as a media executive, serving as Vice President of the Washington Post, Senior Vice President of the Minneapolis Star and Tribune, and Executive Editor of UPI, the worldwide news service.
