Women Who Wrote the War

book cover

This illustrated historical biography celebrates the accomplishments of World War II's female war correspondents -- including Margaret Bourke-White, Martha Gellhorn, Elizabeth "Lee" Miller, and Janet Flanner -- who risked their lives in combat zones to provide firsthand reports on the events of the war.

 

It’s What I Do

book cover

War photographer Lynsey Addario's memoir It's What I Do is the story of how the relentless pursuit of truth, in virtually every major theater of war in the twenty-first century, has shaped her life. What she does, with clarity, beauty, and candor, is to document, often in their most extreme moments, the complex lives of others. It's her work, but it's much more than that: it's her singular calling.

"The Vietnam War: A Film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick" (DVD)

In an immersive narrative, Burns and Novick tell the epic story of the Vietnam War as it has never before been told on film. Features testimony from nearly 100 witnesses, including many Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as Vietnamese combatants and civilians from both the winning and losing sides.

The Vietnam War: The Soundtrack (CD)

The Soundtrack includes many of the iconic songs representing the era, including 38 tracks chosen from the 120 tunes heard on the ten-part film series, "The Vietnam War."

The Vietnam War: An Intimate History (Book)

More than forty years after it ended, the Vietnam War continues to haunt our country. We still argue over why we were there, whether we could have won, and who was right and wrong in their response to the conflict. This volume draws on hundreds of interviews in America and Vietnam to give us the perspectives of people involved at all levels of the war: U.S. and Vietnamese soldiers and their families, high-level officials in America and Vietnam, antiwar protestors, POWs, and many more, seeking to understand why the war happened the way it did and to clarify its complicated legacy.
