Written by Brian Avery, who served with 1RAR and 3RAR in Malaya, 4RAR in Borneo, and commanded 4RAR/NZ Mortar Platoon in Vietnam. The constant themes of the book are the military skills, endurance, and gallantry of the Diggers and Kiwi soldiers as they tracked down and fought a determined Viet Cong foe in Phuoc Tuy province.
