VIETNAM: THE REAL WAR Photographs from the Associated Press at the Haggin Museum

August 5 – October 31, 2021

The Vietnam War was a long, costly and divisive conflict that pitted the communist government of North Vietnam against South Vietnam and its principal ally, the United States. The conflict was intensified by the ongoing Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. More than 3 million people (including over 58,000 Americans) were killed in the Vietnam War, and more than half of the dead were Vietnamese civilians.

To cover the War, The Associated Press gathered an extraordinary group of superb photojournalists in its Saigon bureau, creating one of the greatest photographic legacies of the 20th century. From Malcolm Browne’s photograph of the burning monk and Nick Ut’s picture of a 9-year-old running from a napalm attack to Eddie Adams’ photograph of the execution of a Viet Cong prisoner, Vietnam: The Real War contains images that both recorded and changed history.

*To show appreciation and honor those who have served, Haggin Museum is offering free general admission for veterans during the month of September 2021. Veterans are invited to view Vietnam: The Real War as well as other exhibits and displays throughout the museum.
