Malcolm Browne discusses Muddy boots and red socks : a reporter's life.

Mr. Browne discussed his memoirs and experiences as a war reporter. He spent many years in South Vietnam and won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting. He discussed the photo of a young monk's self-immolation in a Saigon street and how, as a wire service reporter, he was the single reporter and photographer to cover the event. He also related that his middle name, Wild, is the same family name as that of his uncle, Oscar Wild. The title of the book is taken from muddy field boots worn in many of his assignments and the red socks that he once purchased so he would not have to wear the drab olive army issue socks.
