An Australian Reconnaissance Unit In Vietnam
In October 1966, 28 soldiers were chosen to form Australia's first specialist Reconnaissance Platoon in the Vietnam War. One of this platoon's section commanders was a 20-year old regular soldier called Bob Kearney, who led a series of deadly patrols, operating in isolation and extreme danger ahead of the main Australian forces. This is the story of Bob and his unit's tale of courage, terror, madness and survival, told by fellow Vietnam veteran Peter Haran, best-selling author of Trackers and Robert Kearney.
A great read. Insight into the environment, the action, the enemy (VC, NVA & things that crawl/slither), the appalling conditions & the psychological impact on these brave soldiers 🙏
Best book I’ve ever read, I believe it should be awarded the noble peace prize. To the vets and authors of this book thank you for service and sacrifice to our country full respect
