Armed with cameras : the American military photographers of World War II by Peter Maslowski( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Military photographers were responding to a triple imperative. Their commanders needed accurate and detailed pictures in order to design effective military tactics and strategy. Striking photographs and newsreels were also crucial in bolstering homefront morale - they showed what American boys were experiencing and why civilian help in the war effort was essential. Finally, combat cameramen profoundly understood that they were compiling a historical record of this global war, and they used their artistic flair and their technical expertise to take the best possible pictures for posterity. In our own time, as the media and the military hotly debate the role of photography in warfare, Peter Maslowski's book explores the historic importance of cameramen on the battlefield and adds a new chapter to the history of military/media relations. At last, the unparalleled excitement of the military photographers' experience and the richness of their legacy are revealed in this remarkable narrative history
Looking for a hero : Staff Sergeant Joe Ronnie Hooper and the Vietnam War by Peter Maslowski( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Widely acclaimed as the Vietnam War's most highly decorated soldier, Joe Ronnie Hooper in many ways serves as a symbol for that conflict. His troubled, tempestuous life paralleled the upheavals in American society during the 1960s and 1970s, and his desperate quest to prove his manhood was uncomfortably akin to the macho image projected by three successive presidents in their "tough" policy in Southeast Asia. Looking for a Hero extracts the real Joe Hooper from the welter of lies and myths that swirl around his story; in doing so, the book uncovers not only the complicated truth about an American hero but also the story of how Hooper's war was lost in Vietnam, not at home. Extensive interviews with friends, fellow soldiers, and family members reveal Hooper as a complex, gifted, and disturbed man. They also expose the flaws in his most famous and treasured accomplishment: earning the Medal of Honor. In the distortions, half-truths, and outright lies that mar Hooper's medal of honor file, authors Peter Maslowski and Don Winslow find a painful reflection of the army's inability to be honest with itself and the American public, with all the dire consequences that this dishonesty ultimately entailed. In the inextricably linked stories of Hooper and the Vietnam War, the nature of that deceit, and of America's defeat, becomes clear
