From Our Editors

On March 16, 1968, a battle-scarred U.S. fighting unit entered the Vietnamese hamlet of My Lai. There, a group of soldiers murdered 500 unarmed women, children and old men. Simply and courageously, Four Hours in My Lai tells the truth about what happened--a story that should never be forgotten. Companion to the Emmy Award-winning documentary Four Hours to My Lai
