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. Creator Don Lomax based Vietnam Journal on his experiences on his tour of duty in Vietnam in the mid 1960's. In BOOK SIX, war correspondent Scott 'Journal' Neithammer arrives in Khe Sanh at the beginning of the bloody siege. American troops are completely isolated and under constant bombardment from North Vietnamese troops for over two months as the First Air Cavalry struggles to arrive on the scene to reinforce the exhausted Marines. The siege is ultimately broken as North Vietnamese troops withdraw with heavy American reinforcements on the way. But the aftermath signals a shift in U.S. policy and the Khe Sanh base is closed and dismantled. And in a surprise move to the American troops, President Johnson announces a restriction in bombing of North Vietnam. Aside from the Khe Sanh series, Book Six also includes two short stories, "Special Ops: Phoenix" and "Zippo Raid." Picked by Entertainment Weekly as "a graphic novel you should own" and recommended by the Military History Book Club, Vietnam Journal is written and drawn by Don Lomax, a Vietnam War veteran. Max Brooks (World War Z) names Vietnam Journal as one of his best war comic series. "Lomax bases his fictional work on his real experiences in Vietnam in 1966, with powerful results. It is Lomax's concern for average soldiers that, in the end, makes his work significant." - Publishers Weekly. "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.
