Vietnam War Photos Art Propaganda Posters
The Vietnam War was historically documented like no other war before. This was the first war where television brought the frontline to homes thousands of miles away. The battles being fought could be followed daily,With such a vast amount of media information, opinions were formed and influenced the course of the war. In America and Australia antiwar protesters were quickly able to organise rallies to support their cause. Interestingly, on the North Vietnamese side the propaganda methods used were akin to those used in Western Countries during the First World War. Propaganda posters were easily made using rice paper. These posters put forward the idea and the necessity that the common villager could influence the war in the favour of the Ho Chi Minh cause. Over the last 20 years, numerous documentaries have been made about the Vietnam War and indeed even the individual battles. Most of these Vietnam War docos are available in DVD format.
