Description

The acclaimed Vietnam Journal series from Don Lomax, nominated for a Harvey Award, is collected and presented as a series of graphic novels. Vietnam Journal is a look at the Vietnam War through the eyes of a war journalist, Scott 'Journal' Neithammer, as he chronicles the lives and events of soldiers on the front line during the Vietnam War. In BOOK FIVE, the story of the Tet Offensive is chronicled by 'Journal'. It is the biggest push the Viet Cong launched during the Vietnam War and one that almost brought them immediate victory. The American command realizes that the latest assault by the VS is a massive one as multiple targets are all hit at once. This escalates the war to an entirely new level. And with the Tet Offensive in full force, 'Journal' finds the civilian population are more than just tools in the war. As he, along with most of the other press covering the war, realize that although America are winning the battles, they were losing the war. And it is obvious that the Viet Cong would do anything to succeed....anything. And with U.S. troops making their push to Khe Sanh, 'Journal' gets a taste of the politics that have taken over the American involvement in the war as it cements the insanity of the entire Vietnam conflict. And lastly with news of the My Lai Massacre overwhelming the media and press, 'Journal' begins to understand that the tactics of the Viet Cong cannot be used by the Americans. And this puts the war on unequal footing and the only victory possible is a moral one. Collects entire Vietnam Journal Tet '68 series issues. Picked by Entertainment Weekly as "a graphic novel you should own" and recommended by the Military History Book Club. "Even today, VIETNAM JOURNAL is one of the most gritty and brutally honest war stories ever published." - Brian Cronin, Comic Book Resources. "Vietnam Journal by Don Lomax is the best comic book portrayal of Vietnam I have ever read. Its probably one of the best works ever put down in any art form about the war." - Daniel Robert Epstein. "Vietnam Journal is a powerful work." - Marcia Allass, Sequential Tart. "A powerful collection of stories and history of the Vietnam War, created by a veteran of both the war and of war comics " - Douglas P. Dave, School Library Journal.
