They love their work, and theyre very good at it. How can they possibly fail?Covering their war are 40 foreign reporters, including novelist Daniel Ford. Armed with a camera and a notebook, he wanders the country on foot and by military transport--helicopter, jeep, landing craft, junk, armored personnel carrier, and an Air Force flare ship--from the Mekong Delta to the Central Highlands. Once or twice a week, or whenever he is reunited with his Hermes portable, he types up an account of what he has seen and done.

Here is that journal, 36 years after it was written. It is a freeze-frame picture of the Vietnam War before it became a quagmire. How good-hearted we were! Ford says of himself and the men he met in his travels. And how badly it all turned out.
