Vietnam Years : from the jungle to the Australian suburbs
The Vietnam War was the longest and most divisive war in Australian history. Almost 60,000 Australians served and more than 500 lost their lives. At home, thousands protested against the war and conscription and hundreds were sent to jail. This updated edition is the story of both sides of that war, from the vicious fighting of jungle patrols and the bravery shown by so many Australians at the famous Battle of Lang Tan, to the families back home, ripped apart by anger and confusion. Soft cover, small format, photographs, 503 pages.
