The Vietnam war captured in colour in pictures

 

For Americans,

it is one of the most compelling

images of the Vietnam war:

1966s Reaching Out,

which shows a wounded soldier leaning

towards a comrade on a mud-spattered hillside.

 

The picture was taken

by British photojournalist Larry Burrows,

who covered the war for Life magazine

from 1962 until he was killed there in 1971.

 

His images convey the brutality,

chaos and human cost of a disastrous campaign.

 

To mark the 40th anniversary of the end of the war,

here is a selection of them
