Australian Military Operations in Vietnam 2E #3 Australian Army Campaigns Series, Albert Palazzo
1 Australian Military Operations in Vietnam 2E #3 Australian Army Campaigns Series
Albert Palazzo Australia Big Sky Publishing 2009 0980475384 / 9780980475388 2nd Edition Soft cover New Book 24.5 x 17.5 x 1.3 cm 
From 1962 to 1972 Australia joined the United States in fighting a communist inspired insurgency war in the jungles of South Vietnam against infiltrators who sought to overthrow the local government. Over 50,000 Australians served in Vietnam, 519 lost their lives, and the conflict ended ignominiously in the insurgents' victory. Over 30 years later, Australia again finds itself joined with the United States in a struggle against an insurgency, this time in the deserts of Iraq and the mountains of Afghanistan. Although now in the past, the Vietnam War resonates with lessons for the Australian Army as it strives to defeat not Communism but Terrorism. Australian Military Operations in Vietnam highlights some of the successes and failures of an earlier generation of officers for the benefit of today's leaders.

US Marine vs NVA Soldier - Vietnam 1967-68 #13 Combat, David R. Higgins
4 US Marine vs NVA Soldier - Vietnam 1967-68 #13 Combat
David R. Higgins UK Osprey Publishing 2015 1472808991 / 9781472808998 Soft cover New Book 24.8 x 18.4 x 0.8 cm Johnny Shumate 
In 1967 - 68, the United States Marine Corps (USMC) was on the front line of the defence of South Vietnam's Quang Tri province, which was at the very heart of the Vietnam conflict. Facing them were the soldiers of the North Vietnamese Army (NVA), men whose organization and equipment made them a very different opponent from the famous, irregular Viet Cong forces. From the 'Hill Battles' in April 1967 to the struggle for the city of Hue (January - March 1968) this bloody campaign forced the two sides into a gruelling trial of strength. The USMC held a general technological and logistical advantage - including close air support and airborne transport, technology, and supplies - but could not always utilize these resources effectively in mountainous, jungle, or urban environments better known by their Vietnamese opponents. In this arresting account of small-unit combat, David R. Higgins steps into the tropical terrain of Vietnam to assess the performance and experience of USMC and NVA forces in three savage battles that stretched both sides to the limit.

Vietnam Remembered Updated Edition, Edited by Gregory Pemberton
5 Vietnam Remembered Updated Edition
Edited by Gregory Pemberton Australia New Holland Publishers 2017 1742579450 / 9781742579450 Updated Edition Hardcover New New Book 25.5 x 22.0 x 3.2 cm 
Vietnam Remembered Updated Edition. 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's war; what happened to our troops in Vietnam; the way protest against the war built up on the home front; how the 'Vietnam era' - the sixties and early seventies - impinged on Australian attitudes; how Australia received its Vietnam veterans on their return. It also looks at our country's relationship with the Vietnamese, now that many live in Australia. A top team of experts show in this book that the Vietnam War had far-reaching effects on Australia's foreign policy, national politics, and social attitudes. Some of the controversies it provoked have spread beyond the years 1965-1971, when Australia was directly involved. This thorough, fascinating account tells the whole story of the Vietnam conflict, abroad and in Australia. It contains the Roll of Honour of those who died as a result of the Vietnam War; and it ends with a fourth edition of the lists of those who served in Vietnam.

Company of Heroes: A Forgotten Medal of Honor and Bravo Company's War in Vietnam, Eric Poole
6 Company of Heroes: A Forgotten Medal of Honor and Bravo Company's War in Vietnam
Eric Poole UK Osprey Publishing 2015 147280791X / 9781472807915 Hardcover New Book 
There are many broad studies of the Vietnam War, but this work offers an insight into the harrowing experiences of just a small number of men from a single unit, deep in the jungles of Vietnam and Cambodia. It is the remarkable account of a Medal of Honor recipient whose brave actions were forgotten for over three decades: Leslie Sabo Jr. Sabo and other replacement soldiers in Bravo Company, 3rd Battalion, 506th Infantry (Currahees), 101st Airborne Division, were involved in intense, bloody engagements such as the battle for Hill 474 and the Mother's Day Ambush. Beginning with their deployment at the height of the blistering Tet Offensive, and using military records and interviews with surviving soldiers, Eric Poole recreates the terror of combat amidst the jungles and rice paddies of Vietnam. He tells the remarkable story of how Sabo earned his medal, as Bravo Company forged bonds of brotherhood in their daily battle for survival.

Long Tan: The Start of a Lifelong Battle, Harry Smith
7 Long Tan: The Start of a Lifelong Battle
Harry Smith Australia Big Sky Publishing 2015 1922132322 / 9781922132321 Soft cover New Book 23.0 x 15.5 x 1.8 cm 
On the afternoon of 18 August 1966, just five kilometres from the main Australian Task Force base at Nui Dat, a group of Viet Cong soldiers walked into the right flank of Delta Company, 6 RAR. Under a blanket of mist and heavy monsoon rain, amid the mud and shattered rubber trees, a dispersed Company of 108 men held its ground with courage and grim determination against a three-sided attack from a force of 2,500 Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army troops. When the battle subsided, 18 Australian soldiers lay dead and 24 had been wounded. Battlefield clearance revealed 245 enemy bodies with captured documents later confirming the count at over 500 enemy killed and 800 wounded. These men were led by a gruff and gusty perfectionist, Major Harry Smith. Now, some 47 years after the battle, Harry tells his story for the first time. But Long Tan is more than just an account of a historic battle. Harry Smith takes his readers on an extraordinary journey - one that ultimately reveals a remarkable cover-up at the highest military and political echelons.Written in partnership with award-winning journalist Toni McRae, Long Tan is also Harry's life story and portrays his many personal battles, from failed marriages to commando-style killing; from a horrific parachute accident through to his modern-day struggles with bureaucracy for recognition for his soldiers. Harry's battles are tempered by his love of sailing, where he has at last found some peace. Long Tan portrays the wrenching, visceral experience of a man who has fought lifelong battles, in a story that he is only now able to tell. Harry can still hear the gunfire and smell the blood spilt at Long Tan. For him, the fight continues.

Vietnam: A reporter's war, Hugh Lunn
8 Vietnam: A reporter's war
Hugh Lunn Australia ABC Books 2007 0733321720 / 9780733321726 Soft cover New Book 21.0 x 13.6 x 2.3 cm 
Saigon,1967. Fresh-faced 25-year-old Hugh Lunn arrives in Vietnam at the height of the war to cover it for Reuters and quickly meets a fascinating cast of characters: journalists, Vietnamese, military and best of all, Dinh, the Vietnamese reporter and guide who spoke his own brand of English (Dinglish) and whose wisdom and humour become inextricably bound up with the young reporter's view of the war. Before long the author experiences the full horror and tragedy of war, and finds himself questioning not only the US/Australian role in Vietnam, but his own role in a war where images and words could be as powerful as bullets.
