The booklet went out to staffers and stringers covering the Vietnam War./ It was composed by Saigon Bureau Chief Malcolm Browne (1931-2012). The 25-page primer, originally written for Horst Faas and Peter Arnett, provides detailed guidance on all aspects of war coverage, including how to move with troops, how to discern accurate information from propaganda and, most importantly, how to stay safe.
