Lost Over Laos : A true story of tragedy, mystery and friendship

Author(s): Richard Pyle & Horst Faas


In 1971, as American forces hastened their withdrawal from Vietnam, a helicopter was hit by enemy fire over Laos and exploded in a fireball, killing four top combat photographers: Larry Burrows of "Life magazine, Henri Huet of Associated Press, Kent Potter of United Press International, and Keisaburo Shimamoto of "Newsweek. The remoteness of the crash site made a recovery attempt impossible. When the war ended four years later, the war zone was sealed off and the helicopter incident faded from the headlines. But two journalist colleagues--the authors of this book--returned to Laos twenty-seven years later to resolve mysteries about the crash and pay homage to their lost friends. First published 2003.
