Vietnam: Australia's ten year war 1962-1972


The Vietnam War was Australia’s longest overseas active service commitment and had the third greatest number of battle casualties.

This book is a remarkable record of Australia’s involvement in one of the most controversial and divisive wars of the twentieth century. It is an intimate portrayal of the very human side of battle, and covers the debate over National Service, the television media coverage, and reflects on the war’s aftermath. Richard Pelvin has included over 300 rarely seen photographs, pamphlets, letters, newspaper excerpts and diary entries. Here he brings the story of the Vietnam War to life.

Hard cover, photographs, 240 pages.
