Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary, etc.: "Close-Up on War tells the story of French-born Catherine Leroy, one of the Vietnam War's few woman photographers, who documented some of the fiercest fighting in the 20-year conflict. Despite being told that women didn't belong in a "man's world," she was cool under fire, gravitated toward the thickest battles, went along on the soldiers' slogs through the heat and mud of the jungle, crawled through rice paddies, and became the only official photojournalist to parachute into combat with American soldiers. Later, Leroy was gravely wounded from shrapnel, but that didn't keep her down more than a month. When captured by the North Vietnamese in 1968, she talked herself free after photographing her captors, scoring a cover story in Life magazine. A recipientof the George Polk Award, one of the most prestigious awards in journalism, Leroy was one of the most well-known photographers in the world during her time. In addition to texts by Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalists Peter Arnot and Nick Ut, the bookincludes a preface, author's note, endnotes, bibliography, timeline, and index"--
