"Kyoichi Sawada won the Pulitzer Prize for photography in 1966 for his searing images of the war in Vietnam, some of the most iconic to have been produced by any combat photographer (see here for one of the most famous examples). He became a staff photographer for UPI's Saigon Bureau in July 1965 where he quickly became known as a daring combat photographer who hitched rides to major battlefields on medical helicopters. He subsequently became head of the UPI's Hong Kong photo department in 1969. He returned to Saigon in 1970 to cover Laos and Cambodia and was killed in Cambodia while on the job on Oct. 28, 1970."--Photo-eye
