Photographers with The Associated Press were responsible for many, if not most, of the iconic images of the Vietnam War, from Nick Ut's picture of a young girl fleeing a napalm attack to Eddie Adams' shocking picture of the execution of a suspected Viet Cong prisoner. These images are still powerful nearly half a century later and a new book and exhibition, "Vietnam: The Real War, A Photographic History by the Associated Press," includes these and other well-known images. But a photograph can sometimes have its most visceral impact on its first viewing and there are many pictures in the collection that still retain the sting of the unfamiliar. We have a small selection here of pictures you may or may not recall that represent some of the courageous efforts of photojournalists in a war whose scars are still felt today.
GRAPHIC WARNING: Contains images which some viewers may find disturbing.
