9781475920413: The War Within

. . . a memoir that is at once dramatic, disturbing, sexually charged, and often very funny, but ultimately a moving portrait of a man who has found the inner strength to overcome . . . ' - Paul Ham, international journalist and author This is a complex, virtuoso analysis of an Australian life written by an unabashed and unrepentant author-an acidic dissection of the role that genes and environment have in developing a person's character, as well as a sauntering chronicle of social analysis. In turn, we follow the life of the author as he comes to terms with being a disaffected youth, a patriotic but naive infantryman in the Vietnam War, and an alienated, disabled veteran struggling with male status anxiety-apparently inexhaustible in its capacity to cause suffering. Along the way, Tate examines the dark crevices of the male psyche as he battles inner demons and the unconditional love of his beautiful Christian wife, Carole. Above all, this memoir is a celebration of the human condition and of a man with a can-do, cavalier attitude to life and his desire to rise above mediocrity. An outstanding contribution to Australia's rich heritage of memoir.

About the Author:

Don Tate is a retired soldier and high school English teacher. Raised in a rural part of Brisbane, Australia, he went to the Vietnam War as a naive but patriotic infantryman and was badly wounded in action. After years of rehabilitation, he and his wife, Carole, have raised five children in the Shellharbour region of New South Wales, and in 2000, Don received the Australian Sports Medal for services to sport. He is an outspoken advocate for war veterans.
