Blackwell North Amer
From the most photographed war in the twentieth century, among the enduring images is one of a little girl screaming in pain and terror after being burned by napalm in an air attack. On June 8, 1972, nine-year-old Kim Phuc ran from her burning village in South Vietnam and into the eye of history. Her photograph, taken by an Associated Press photographer, was seen around the world and helped turn public opinion against the Vietnam War. It is an image that remains branded in the memory of all who lived through the Vietnam years. This book is the story of how that photograph came to be taken and what happened to Kim Phuc after it was taken. It opens up to American readers an unknown world - the world of Vietnam after the American army left and Saigon fell to the Communists from the north.
