Griffiths' 'Vietnam Inc.' ist schlichtweg Legende. "The closest we are ever going to come to a definitve photo-journalistic essay on the war" schrieb die New York Times anno1971. "Of all the hundreds of books about South Vietnam, this is the truest, the most important, the most upsetting." (New Statesman, 1971) - "'Vietnam Inc.' (...) is the best work of photo-reportage of war ever published. There's effectively no argument. The book sets entirely new standards for critical judgement of the medium of photo-reportage." (Time, 1972) ------ Auch nach dreißig Jahren hat das Opus des MAGNUM Veteranen nichts von seiner Dynamik verloren. Dank Phaidon ist es wieder erhältich.

First published in 1971, Griffiths's classic account of the war was the outcome of three years reporting and is one of the most detailed surveys of any confilct. "The closest we are ever going to come to a definitve photo-journalistic essay on the war." (New York Times, 1971) - "Of all the hundreds of books about South Vietnam, this is the truest, the most important, the most upsetting." (New Statesman, 1971)
