I served as a front line Australian soldier in the Korean War, the Indonesian Confrontation and the Vietnam War. This book covers the first half of a lively life which includes the periods before and between those three conflicts. This book has been claimed by some to be a ‘man’s book’. This is because it it is not a tear jerker pulling on emotional strings, rather it is the interesting and amusing story of a country lad, a bush kid, who did some growing up courtesy of the Army in exotic Asian places where I learnt, I loved and I killed. Thankfully I did more loving and learning than killing. It also outlines some little known explanations regarding those three conflicts which may lift the veil of confusion caused by the news media normally offering up its information piecemeal. This will give more clarity to the reasons and results of those three wars which caused so much misery and bloodshed. Apart from the wars, but also an integral part of my life, is a chapter on how, during my lifetime, Australia as well as other countries including the USA, was stealthily stolen and sold from under us as a people by politicians. Also, how some mega-corporations and government departments have become the new enemy of the people, to the point where we are all fighting for our very health and wellbeing. This book is about the realities of life which includes as much humour as horror, which altogether makes for a wild ride.

About the Author:

I have always loved books. The smell, the touch, the very sight of them. I have books that I have read many times over; those that I intend to read, as well as those I simply love to explore for purely their beauty and design. As an avid bookworm I have books spilling over and about, everywhere. Somewhat obsessional, should I be reading a good book or into some art project, I often forget to eat which is another form of dieting, I suppose. It was once suggested, that I had gone from being a ‘dog of war’ to being a ‘spiritual warrior’. A reasonable summing up of my life in one sentence. But like everyone, my life has proved to be somewhat more complex. Art though, as much as war, has been an essential part of my life, as has a love of history. Also, if according to Tacitus, ‘Philosophy is the love of wisdom’, then add philosophy to the list. Though not religious, yet I have sincerely sought out the sacred and the spiritual; meaning, I am the one to decide and take responsibility for those beliefs acquired over my life’s journey. So I am more than happy to listen but ultimately I will do the deciding. All in all, life has left me with a variety of experiences from the normal to the para-normal; from the bland to the miraculous. But as for my writing, at least from some of the feed-back I have received already, it does appear that there are those who enjoy reading what I have enjoyed writing.
