Vietnam - The Australian War
Seen as the last 'hot' frontline of the Cold War, the ten year struggle in the rice paddies and jungles of South Vietnam unleashed the most devastating firepower on the Vietnamese nation and visited terrible harm on civilians and soldiers. Guided by their commanders' experience of jungle combat, the Australian troops operated with stealth, deception and restraint. Highly acclaimed author, Paul Ham draws on hundreds of accounts by soldiers, politicians, aid workers, entertainers and the Vietnamese people to reconstruct this full history of our longest military campaign. Soft cover, photographs, 814 pages.
