Counter For more than 25 years, American memory has been haunted by photographs of the Vietnam War, the most troubling and divisive foreign conflict in our history. Our collective recollection and deep familiarity with the war has been shaped by the work of the courageous civilian and military photographers who worked alongside American troops on the fields of battle. Yet there remains an experience of the war in Vietnam that we have rarely seen—that of the other side.

Author and veteran combat photographer Tim Page, who was a freelancer for UPI during the war, returned to Vietnam to find his surviving North Vietnamese counterparts, the photographers who spent as many as ten years documenting, with equal depth and courage, their nation?s conflict with America. From interviews with these forgotten men and from their surprising photographs, a stunning new visual record of the war emerges in Another Vietnam. Among the many remarkable images of daily life and battle on the North Vietnamese side are the elephants moving munitions down the Ho Chi Minh Trail, an impromptu operating room in a mangrove swamp, Jane Fonda on her controversial trip in-country, and American POWs at the Hanoi Hilton. Released to coincide with a major National Geographic Television documentary, Another Vietnam provides a rare and captivating change of perspective and a moving meditation on the sacrifice and loss on both sides of the war.
