Note "Each of the nine Australian Royal Australian Regiment (RAR) infantry battalions that served in Vietnam has produced histories of their tour - or tours - of duty. This modest work on a battalion on "the other side" will hopefully complement those publications and the official histories. This 145,000-word work presents a translation and examination of The heroic 445 Battalion : its History and Tradition (Tieu Doan 445 Anh Hung : Lich Su /Truyen Thong) - ie the "445 Battalion History" published in 1991. As near as possible to to a literal translation of the Vietnamese text has been attempted - without any ommissions. As a result, the English prose may appear somewhat stilted in parts. Nevertheless, it is hoped that this work will bring an understanding of D 445's story to a wider readership." -- Preface. Also includes details and analysis of the Battalion's engagements with Australian forces, including the Battle of Long Tan. Includes bibliographical references and index.
