Canister! On! Fire! (2 volume box set)

Bruce Cameron

Australian Tank Operations in Vietnam.

Canister! On! Fire! tells the remarkable, but little known story of Australian tanks in the Vietnam War. Based on 12 years of research, this book brings to life a previously unheralded aspect of the conflict. It is the story of a select group of soldiers, both regular and conscript, serving their country against the odds.

The 53-tonne Centurion tanks were not only involved in intense fighting in conjunction with infantry and artillery to capture enemy defences and defeat attacks, but also fought their own battles against enemy mines, ambushes, and an unforgiving terrain and climate.

Hard covers in slipcase, 968 pages over 2 volumes.
