This book is a documentary report on the Vietnamese people's courageous struggle for freedom and independence. The photos taken by Vietnamese, Soviet, French, American, German and other reporters tell of the crimes of American imperialism, which waged a dirty war in Vietnam against a freedom-loving people. The photographic documents accuse, they invite to say "No!" to the imperialist aggression, to the armed intervention of the United States against the valiant Vietnamese people. One cannot stand aside when blood is flowing next door, when attempts are being made to shackle, to shoot down freedom!
