Some excellent images at this site. Note that many could stir up some bad memories so visit at your own risk. These are some of the best I have seen. It is a commercial site with these images for sale as well as books for sale.....

"Under Fire"- Images from Vietnam
http://www.pieceuniquegallery.com reveals the extraordinary talent, grace and courage of the young photographers who risked their lives to document the most photographed war of the 20th century. Many of these photographers were wounded, some several times, and a number of them did not survive.

Piece Unique Gallery is proud to offer affordable museum-quality prints of photographs that were published in magazines, reproduced in books and exhibited in museums worldwide. These are images by legendary photographers who forged the collective
memory of a generation.

Highlights from the Web site include:

Dozens of audio interviews with photographers who share their Vietnam
experiences, as well as testimonials from colleagues and friends of those among us who were killed or have been missing for over 30 years.

Award winning Australian journalist John Pilger takes visitors to Vietnam today in sound and video clips.

Additional online resources that recreate the sounds of the war in Vietnam,
including the music that filled our lives.

Our book section contains some of the best books of the Vietnam war which can be ordered through Amazon.com

"Under Fire" Images from Vietnam is the first of several multimedia projects to be presented on Piece Unique Gallery's Web site.

Piece Unique Gallery is a division of Pieceunique, which was founded in 1997 by Catherine Leroy, an award-winning photojournalist who went to Vietnam at the age of 21. Leroy was the only accredited journalist to partake in a combat jump with the 173rd Airborne and was wounded in combat with the Marines. During the 1968 Tet Offensive, she was briefly detained by the North Vietnamese Army in Hue and managed to bring back exclusive images from her experience on "the other side" that put her on the cover of Life Magazine.

How about a step by step instruction on how to get to this "Under Fire" feature. I get to the main web site, but I am stymied as to how to go further.
