By the time that the engagement had ended, 47,000 Australians had participated in the most controversial military involvement in Australia's recent history. While debate on the Vietnam involvement occupied the newspaper headlines, the soldiers of the Australian Task Force confronted the day-to-day realities of the conflict -- for five and a half years. This book offers the first detailed accounts of the strategy, policies and experience of a force which was based at Nui Dat in Phuoc Tuy Province from 1966 to 1971." -- from the rear panel blurb.
