ARLY IN 1968, 23 year-old photojournalist Robert Ellison began documenting the siege at Khe Sanh. Following a 30-man combat unit along the frontlines, he witnessed an enemy ambush that left the survivors scrambling out of the jungle.

ELLISON NARROWLY ESCAPED, returning to New York with amazing close-ups of bewildered young soldiers. The dramatic photographs, published first in Newsweek, lead to a nationwide reappraisal of U.S. involvement.
  TRAGICALLY THESE PHOTOS were his last. On his return trip he was declared "missing and presumed dead" when his C-123 transport plane was shot down by enemy gunners.

A NEWSWEEK CORRESPONDENT reminisced: "Bob Ellison had the sixth sense of a great photographer. He was absolutely fearless, but I never once heard him talk about his war experiences. Bob let his pictures speak for themselves."
