In March 1968, during the Vietnam War, a U.S. military unit entered the South Vietnamese village of My Lai. According to a later U.S. Army investigation, between 40 and 100 Vietnamese civilians were rounded up and killed by U.S. forces. Mr. Hersh has written two books on what is referred to as the My Lai massacre and, in his keynote speech, reviewed the incident. He was awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 1970 for international reporting.
