This account of one particular Australian battalion's experiences in the Vietnam war is related by an officer who served there. It covers the seventh battalion's tours of duty in 1867-68 and 1970-71, and is a frank account of patrols, ambushes, cordon and search operations, fleeting contacts and occasional kills - casualties inflicted and casualties taken. It is also the story of action during the maelstrom of the 1968 Tet offensive, of fierce engagements such as Suoi Chan Pha and Ap Suoi Nghe. The result: gradually depriving the enemy of sources of support, sapping his morale and destroying his dominance of the civil population.
