Vietnam Diary, first published in 1963, is veteran war correspondent Richard Tregaskis' eyewitness account of the early period of the Vietnam War. The Diary is filled with personal stories of some of the 14,000 U.S. troops in Vietnam at the time-some heroic, some tragic, but all moving. Missions of the U.S. Marines, U.S. Army , and Special Forces are detailed, as is the larger picture of American advisors leading Vietnamese troops into battle against the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army. Illustrated throughout with b/w photographs.
