A more honest advertisement for Hollywood's latest war film.

A more honest advertisement for Hollywood's latest war film.
"In more than one case a Vietcong suspect has been towed afterinterrogation behind an armored personnel carrier... This always results in death in one of it's most painful forms." - Malcom Browne, in The New Face of War.

The photograph used in this alternative ad for the movie "We Were Soldiers", was taken by Photographer Kyoichi Sawada of United Press International (UPI). The infamous photo shows U.S. Troops with a Vietnamese man tied to, and being dragged behind, an American armored personnel carrier. The photo comes from the 1966 book by Felix Greene, VIETNAM - VIETNAM, which is now out of print.

Disappointed - the link leads to $mail-order

This "we were soldiers" poster is good, but I didn't see it
at the link. Instead, there's a catalog of $10.00 political prints. The "soldiers" image that's posted on the Indy's is small, but might work ok in a flyer or pamphlet
