Anti-American Art: Look, Up in the Sky....Down on the Ground
Two of a series of stamps issued by North Vietnam in 1969 to honor the nation's air defenses, then heavily engaged in fending off massive attacks by the world's largest military machine. The Soviet Union supplied MiG fighter jets to Vietnam, shown on the left, which helped shoot down many of the thousands of intruding US aircraft downed on their missions to destroy the infrastructure of the nation. The stamp on the right shows a wounded American POW being escorted from the wreckage of his plane.
