Vietnam War

This book makes the first real assessment of what the Vietnam War meant, on the battlefields and in Australia. When the first Australian troops landed on Vietnamese soil, the significance of the conflict was scarcely realised but in time it was to affect not only tens of thousands of Australians who served in Vietnam, but an extraordinary cross section of people at home. Debate about the war continues two decades later and this book provides the vital answers about how Australia got involved in America#65533;e(tm)s war; what happened to our troops in Vietnam; the way protest against the war built up on the home front; how the #65533;e~Vietnam era#65533;e(tm) the sixties and early seventies impinged on Australian attitudes; how Australia received its Vietnam veterans on their return.
