Not being a big fan of colour photography,it comes as a surprise to me that I keep returning to Burrows Mutter Ridge photo-you know the one,black marine with a white blood stained bandage moving toward another marine,white,possibly dead/dying,torn pants,left hand clutching a narrow tree trunk.I'm mesmerized by this photo and have been for many,many years.Well the question is this-how do I go about getting a good copy of the original and or a reprint faithful to the original.Are there any members who've bought somewhwere on the web,that they can recommend,thanks as always for any suggestions.

Sorry I can't point you at a good place to get the copy you're interested in, Alan, but I do want to recommend the book "Lost Over Laos" by Horst Faas and Richard Pyle, if you're interested on Burrows and war photography in Vietnam.
