Why everything you think you know about Australia's Vietnam War is
wrong. When Mark Dapin first interviewed Vietnam veterans and wrote
about the war, he swallowed (and regurgitated) every misconception.
He wasn't alone. In Australia's Vietnam, Dapin reveals that every
stage of Australia's commitment to the Vietnam War has been
misunderstood, misinterpreted and shrouded in myth. From army
claims that every national serviceman was a volunteer; and the
level of atrocities committed by Australian troops; to the belief
there no welcome home parades until the late 1980s and returned
soldiers were met by angry protesters. Australia's Vietnam is a
major contribution to the understanding of Australia's experience
of the war and will change the way we think about memory and
military history. Acclaimed journalist and bestselling military
historian Mark Dapin busts long-held and highly charged myths about
the Vietnam War Dapin reveals his own mistakes and regrets as a
journalist and military historian and his growing realisation that
the stereotypes of the Vietnam War are far from the truth This book
will change the way military history is researched and written
