This Vietnam war book records the operations of 3 Field Troop Royal Australian Engineers 1RAR. They were the 1st to find the secret Viet Cong tunnels. The Author was a graduate of the Royal Military College, Duntroon, as a young captain Sandy MacGregor commanded 3 Field Troop in Vietnam, where he won the Military Cross. He served in the Army for 30 years, finishing as a colonel in the Reserves. This book was the forerunner of the new book titled ' A Sappers' War How the legendary Aussie Tunnel Rats fought the Vietcong' by Jimmy Thomson with Sandy MacGregor
 
Among the first Australians to fight in Vietnam, they faced death every day defusing Viet Cong booby traps - then partied all night in a casino they'd built in secret. They led hundreds of American troops to safety, but fought US military police to a standstill in the bars of South Vietnam.
They built the Australian Task Force's base - then sabotaged a headquarters conference, booby trapped showers and blew up a generator rather than kowtow to newly arrived officers. And that's before we even mention sex ...
 
Most importantly, the men of Three Field Troop discovered a huge Viet Cong tunnel complex and were the first allied troops to follow the enemy down into their underground city. They were the original Tunnel Rats and this is their story.
