Bodies of US paratroopers lie near a command post

during the battle of An Ninh, 18 September 1965.

 

The paratroopers,

of the 1st Brigade, 101st Airborne Division,

were hit by heavy fire from guerrillas

that began as soon as the first elements of the unit landed.

 

The dead and wounded were later evacuated to An Khe,

where the 101st was based.

 

The battle was one of the first of the war

between major units of US forces and the Vietcong

Henri Huet    FR    1927-1971

 

Les photos d'Henri Huet

sont sans fard :

elles montrent

des soldats en difficulté,

des blessés graves

qui n'en ont plus

pour longtemps,

des cadavres qui attendent

d'être rapatriés dans des sacs.

 

Dans sa photo

la plus célèbre,

publiée en couverture

de Life en 1966,

un docteur tente

de soigner un soldat

alors qu'il est lui-même

sérieusement blessé.

The Vietnam war

remembered in pictures – review        15 March 2011

 

Tribute to Henri Huet

and the photographers

who risked all

to capture images

of Vietnam conflict

opens at Maison Européenne

de la Photographie, Paris

http://www.guardian.co.uk/artanddesign/2011/mar/15/vietnam-photography-huet-guillot-review

 

 

 

 

Even during a war

that produced some

of the most iconic moments

in photojournalism,

Henri Huet’s

images of Vietnam

distinguish themselves

as particularly

artistic and moving.

 

Unlike most war photographers,

Huet was a native of the land

he was photographing,

the son of a French engineer

and Vietnamese mother.

 

Shooting for the Associated Press,

he captured an image

of a badly wounded American medic

continuing to tend

to other injured soldiers

that landed on the cover

of Life magazine

and won him

the Robert Capa Gold Medal.

 

Like Capa,

the famed chronicler of battle,

Huet died

in the line of duty:

he was shot down

over Laos in 1971,

at the age of 43.
