Product description

In an intensely personal account, this chronicle draws on a young conscript and his comrades' lives before, during, and after the Vietnam War. Offering an Australian perspective of the trauma that occurs after such a deeply emotional and psychological experience, this story is a vivid, piercingly honest portrayal of a post-war breakdown and recovery. This sensitive and unforgettable account of one man's struggle through a war and a mental illness is at once a tribute to the soldiers who fought beside him and a lucid account of the horrors he faced.

Review quote

"Very well written, clear in its descriptions, self-aware in its assessments and, surprisingly, not depressing to read. It is amazing that Barry Heard has been able to get all this traumatic material down so vividly, and to be able to interpret his experiences so convincingly." --"Quadrant"
