Scott "Journal" Niethammer returns to report on the seemingly endless conflict and this time he heads into Cambodia as the incursion of that country is well underway by United States and South Vietnamese military forces. He is accompanied by a slightly erratic photographer with the unhealthy attitude that he is impervious to enemy fire when behind the camera's lens.

With Journal's help they make a desperate race for the border and salvation.

And the ever present enemy awaits any opportunity to hand the Americans a sound defeat should there be a misstep in their favor. Collects Vietnam Journal Series Two comic book issues 6-10.
