Malcolm Browne is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist.
Drafted at the tail end of the Korean War, Browne was assigned to write for a military newspaper, “Pacific Stars and Stripes,” which launched his celebrated career as a war correspondent. He was among the first correspondents to cover the war in Vietnam, and in 1964, his insightful reporting on civil unrest in South Vietnam earned him a Pulitzer Prize.
He joined “The New York Times” in 1968 and eventually switched to science writing. After a stint as an editor at “Discover” magazine, he returned to the battlefield once more to cover the 1991 Persian Gulf War.
