This Discovered Camera Shows Never Before Seen Photos From The Vietnam War

The Vietnam war was an armed conflict that took place over a period of 20 years from 1955 to 1975. This war led to the deaths of anywhere from 1 to 4 million people from all across the world. Unfortunately, most of those killed in the conflict were civilians. Despite the fact that many believed it was a pointless war to get involved with in the first place, it happened, and we have some new photos that show a different side of the conflict. Here are 12 photos you have likely never seen from the lengthy war in Vietnam, with the 8th entry being particularly interesting.

 

#12 Range Of Emotions

001--12-range-of-emotions-634010This photo demonstrates the various different states and emotions one can go through during a battle in the war. There are people rejoicing, people breathing a sigh of relief, people helping each other out to safety and even a person writhing on the floor in pain. This sight was all too common during the war.

 

#11 Collateral Damage

002--11-collateral-damage-634144Unfortunately in a war like this, it isn’t only soldiers on each side that become involved. Collateral damage is often huge, and countless civilians are often harmed, have their homes destroyed and are left to fend for themselves. Whether they were on the Viet Cong’s side or not, no one deserves things like that to happen to them.

 

#10 Chopper Down

003--10-chopper-down-634186The American side of the battle often had the technological advantage over the Viet Cong, who largely resided on guerilla warfare and surprise. This photo showed the American side using this technological advantage to drop troops in enemy territory. Unfortunately, these drop-offs were times when numerous helicopters were destroyed by enemies.
